flow period

1. n. [Well Testing]
Part of a well test when the well is flowing. It is usually specified prior to tests to ensure that a stable flow situation has been reached, or that the pressure disturbance has reached far enough into the formation to allow determination of a representative value for kh, or that any nearby boundaries could be recognized in a subsequent buildup.
