blowdown

1. vb. [Well Completions]
To vent gas from a well or production system. Wells that have been shut in for a period frequently develop a gas cap caused by gas percolating through the fluid column in the wellbore. It is often desirable to remove or vent the free gas before starting well intervention work.
