pressure-squared plot

1. n. [Well Testing]
A plot of p2 versus time function used to analyze low-pressure gas-well drawdown and buildup tests. The square term arises from substituting a gas-law equation into the differential equations where required to account for fluid compressibility. This allows an approximation for the differential equations that approaches the linear form required to use the classical solutions of the diffusion equation.
