Hundreds of horizontal wells have been drilled and completed successfully in many oil producing countries. When properly utilized, horizontal wells produce more oil at lower cost. To support its economic evaluation, production prediction models are needed before the implementation.
This paper presents two analytical methods for predicting performance of a horizontal well. One method uses a steady-state inflow equation to …
