We apply both numerical modelling, by means of single-phase and two-phase models, and analytical calculation for estimation of far-field pressure buildup, considering a generic scenario of dipping aquifer and a site-specific scenario for the Scania site, southwest Sweden. We examine the effect of depth-dependent fluid and material properties as well as formation geometries on far-field pressure buildup. The use of simple analytical calculations, including the Theis equation and superposition based on the method of images, for the estimation of pressure buildup is evaluated. The results are also discussed in terms of comparison between the numerical simulations and simple analytical calculations.
