layered reservoir testing

1. n. [Well Testing]
An advanced testing technique using a combination of transient-rate and pressure measurements and stabilized flow profiles to determine permeability and skin for each of several layers commingled in a well. The technique requires a series of flow-rate changes, with at least one flow-rate change for each layer to be characterized.
