This paper represents the first contribution in quantifying the effects of wellbore storage along with those of skin and turbulence intensity on deliverability from gas wells. A decay factor, WD, has been introduced to account for the contribution of sandface flow rate to early-time transient production from the gas wells. Generalized charts for type-curve studies on gas wells, based on pseudopressure and pseudotime concepts, along with wellbore storage, are presented with applications and support from field data.
