Radial well modeling is a powerful tool of reservoir simulation. Due to excellent spatial resolution of near wellbore zone radial models are used to investigate the flow in the vicinity of the well. Kashagan is a giant offshore oilfield located in the North Caspian Sea, which development has a lot of challenges. Under these circumstances proper planning of the activities is very important. And Radial Well Models were used in Agip KCO in order to plan and support well commissioning operations for Kashagan Experimental Program wells. Simulation studies were performed using Eclipse 300 software. The paper provides brief workflow overview and description of successful Radial Well models applications in Kashagan, as well as models limitations and lessons learned.
