Regularization methods are used to construct computational algorithms for the interpretation of results from hydrodynamic studies of horizontal wells that provide estimates of the reservoir anisotropy, reservoir pressure, and the dependence of the in-place permeability on pressure. In contrast to graphic analytic methods, the proposed approach does not require the identification of flow regimes.
