homogeneous formation

1. n. [Well Testing]

Formation with rock properties that do not change with location in the reservoir. This ideal never actually occurs, but many formations are close enough to this situation that they can be considered homogeneous. Most of the models used for pressure-transient analysis assume the reservoir is homogeneous.
