Abstract: Abstract Diagnostic fracture injection tests (DFIT) are conducted to estimate the magnitude of the minimum horizontal stress (tectonic) and characterize essential reservoir properties, such as reservoir permeability and actual reservoir pressure in conventional and unconventional reservoirs. When properly designed, and conducted, this type of transient test can help operators to reliably extract important reservoir data and reduce related operational costs and time. This paper provides a state o…
