Please does anyone have any reading material about MDT Interpretation
I am looking for a conversion Table and/or Charts for Gradient to Fluid Density and Salinity.
Thanks in advance

Thanks Kader 009

i think for MDT we can plot as RFT (pressure vs. depth) to get the contacts and the slopes are the gradients

for interpretation i think the curve still in the spherical flow regime so it is -1/2 slope in the derivative plot

or sometimes you can deal with it as normal test using Horner plot, or using type curves
you can refere to oil well testing book go to and search for this book
in the DST chapter you can find plenty of things really interesting for you

good luck
