Production Testing

210 result(s) found.

production testing  Tests in an oil or gas well are carried out to determine its flow capacity at specific conditions of reservoir and flowing pressures. Important concepts, such as absolute open flow potential, annular pressure, critical flow rate, net gas production and water/oil ratio are covered in this discipline. The terms have all been defined and reviewed by production testing experts, and many are augmented by high-quality graphics.
