    Abstract

    Reservoir simulation is essential to the interpretation of well flow tests and in turn for the estimation of reservoir capacity and flow potential. Permeability of many reservoir rocks may be reduced by overburden pressure, and it is important to incorporate this into reservoir modelling.
