This report deals primarily with the analysis of the required parameters, focusing on the various pressure measurements and anayisis techniques. It also surveys the material - heat balance equations essential for the establishment of a reservoir model for performance matching prediction. This report also assumes that we have a geothermal reservoir with little or no net heat transfer. With this assumption one can regard the geothermal reservoir as a reservoir with isothermal fluid flow. This is the same assumption used in developing pressure analysis techniques in a petroleum reservoir. Therefore, petroleum well test analysis techniques, with very little modification, can be utilized for geothermal reservoir analysis.
