5.4.2: Transient Performance of Gas Wells


In our earlier discussions on the performance of oil wells, we discussed transient (time dependent) flow and the flow regimes encountered during transient flow. These flow regimes also occur in gas wells and are:

  • Well dominated flow
    • Wellbore storage
    • Damage/Stimulation
  • Transient flow
  • Late transient flow
  • Boundary dominated flow
    • Steady-state
    • Pseudo steady-state
