Multi-fractured horizontal well’s model is complicated, which have to consider lots of parameters and bring other difficulties for the analysis of dynamic data. This paper intends to identify the difference from a theoretical perspective first and consider the nonlinearity of numerical horizontal method can explain or evaluate for these wells. Then this paper based on an actual multi-fractured horizontal well of gas and utilize the new model to analysis of dynamic data of multi-fractured horizontal well with different analysis method, through contrast with each result concluded that the nonlinearity of numerical horizontal model is the most appropriate for the analysis of dynamic data of multi-fractured horizontal well. The nonlinearity of numerical horizontal method has considered interferences between fractures and nonlinearity PVT and other factors, which are advanced than other methods and this method is the most appropriate for the analysis of dynamic data of multi-fractured horizontal well up to now.
Key words: Multi-fractured; Horizontal well; Analysis of dynamic data
