maximum treating pressure

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
The surface-pump pressure limit below which a treatment should be performed. The maximum treating pressure is determined to avoid fracturing the formation or damaging completion components. The maximum treating pressure is generally calculated to ensure that the pump-pressure limit equates to downhole and reservoir conditions that are within the design limits of the treatment.
