Keywords: Reservoir, well-testing, parameter identification, optimal input design

Abstract: This article discusses the use of optimal input design and parameter identification methods in reservoir evaluation. A new optimal input design criterion is presented which in addition to the uncertainty in the parameter estimates accounts for the curvature of the parameter space.
