Fundamentals of Formation Testing


Cost-effective formation testing is a vital part of modern oil and gas operations. As production companies pursue reserves in high-cost, high-risk environments, formation testing plays an increasingly prominent role in decision making, but complete understanding of downhole conditions is crucial from the first exploratory well to wells drilled for enhanced recovery in any field. This reference book, produced by Schlumberger for oilfield technical professionals, illustrates state-of-the-art technologies with field examples from well testing applications to test design, operations, and interpretation.
