pressure transient test

1. n. [Well Completions]

A means of assessing reservoir performance by measuring flow rates and pressures under a range of flowing conditions and applying the data to a mathematical model. Fundamental data relating to the interval under test, such as reservoir height and details of the reservoir fluids, are also input. The resulting outputs typically include an assessment of reservoir permeability, the flow capacity of the reservoir and any damage that may be restricting productivity.
