drainage area

1. n. [Well Testing]
The reservoir area or volume drained by the well. The terms drainage area, reservoir area and drainage volume are often incorrectly used interchangeably. When several wells drain the same reservoir, each drains its own drainage area, a subset of the reservoir area.
