This paper introduces new integrated approaches for estimating pseudo-steady state productivity index (PI) and shape factor of oil and gas reservoirs drained by horizontal wells and dominated by multiphase flow conditions. These approaches couple PVT data, relative permeability curves, and pressure distribution models during pseudo-steady state flow (PSS). The objective is eliminating the uncertainties of applying single phase flow models and substantially comprising the realistic parameters that govern multiphase flow conditions. The importance of this study is represented by introducing the impact of multiphase flow (Gas, Oil, Water) to the productivity index and inflow performance relationship of reservoirs depleted by horizontal wellbores.
