Method of type
curve is applied for timedrawdown, timedistance drawdown plot
analysis, and for only few conceptual schemes
 for analysis of

Simultaneously
with the type curve, the "Value"
supplemental window is displayed showing previously selected wells
(or observation points on distancedrawdown plot) as well as
parameters estimated by method of type curve.
Normally, the
method is applied to the whole diagnostic curve.
