L. M. Slusarchuck & B. C. Dueck


Since its introduction in Western Canada, much experience has been gained in evaluating wells with the Repeat Formation Tester. This paper briefly describes the physical features of the RFT tool, in- terpretation techniques, and the results obtained in well evaluation. Log examples and interpretation results from a variety of geological and geographic areas of Western Canada are presented. The Repeat Formation Tester has shown itself to be a reliable and speedy method of obtaining formation pressure information and fluid analysis.
