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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
