The increasing worldwide demand for energy motivates the oil and gas industry to develop reservoirs that are continually more difficult to produce. These difficulties are due to the reservoir characters (tight gas sands, coal bed methane reservoirs, condensate reservoirs, deep and ultradeep reservoirs, etc.) or their history (mature fields, etc.) One way to improve and accelerate hydrocarbon recovery is an effective stimulation program.

The integration of fracture simulation and well performance can provide valuable insight into the effectiveness of a stimulation treatment. This process requires the integration of several analytical tools. The actual rate and pressure response from the stimulation...
