average reservoir pressure

1. n. [Well Testing]
The pressure that would be obtained if all fluid motion ceases in a given volume of reservoir. It also is the pressure to which a well will ultimately rise if shut in for an infinite period.
2. n. [Production Testing]
A volumetric average of the pressure exerted by the fluids inside the reservoir at a specific depletion stage. Average reservoir pressure can be measured only when the well is shut in.
