In order to assess the success of a thermal project, it is important to monitor swept volume over time. Falloff tests are commonly used to estimate swept volume for steam injection projects. Steam-injection falloff test can be significantly affected by heat losses. This paper presents a practical method to overcome the proceeding and other shortcomings of the method presented. In the proposed modified method, pressure derivative graphs are used to identify flow regimes and to improve the analysis accuracy significantly.
