Stimulated well drainage

DFIT is the diagnostic fracture injection test or the fracture calibration injection falloff test performed to estimate ISIP, fracture closure pressure, fluid efficiency, leak off coefficient, formation permeability and pressure before the main hydraulic fracture treatment.

Steady state flow boundary conditions:

P |_{x=x_e/2} = P |_{x=-x_e/2} = P_i
 \frac{dP}{dt} =0\ for \ \forall x

From Darcy's law:

\frac{q}{2}=\frac{kA}{\mu}\ \frac{dP}{dx}
 A =y_e*h
dP=\frac{q \mu}{2ky_eh} dx

Integration gives: P-P_{wf}=\frac{q \mu}{2ky_eh} x

Since average pressure is: \bar P = \frac{\int P dx}{\int dx}

 \bar P = \frac{ \int \limits_{0}^{x_e/2} \left ( \frac{q \mu}{2ky_eh} x + P_{wf} \right ) dx}{\int dx} = \left. \frac{q \mu}{2ky_eh} \frac{x}{2} \right|_{x=0}^{x=x_e/2} + P_{wf} = \frac{q \mu x_e}{8ky_eh} + P_{wf}
J_D=\frac{q \mu}{2 \pi k h} \frac{1}{( \bar P - P_{wf})} =\frac{q \mu}{2 \pi k h} \frac{8ky_eh}{q \mu x_e} = \frac{4y_e}{\pi x_e}=\frac{4}{\pi}
