pressure transient well tests

1. n. [Well Testing]
Well tests in which pressure is recorded as a function of time and interpreted using various analysis methods. These include buildup tests and drawdown tests in production wells and falloff tests in injection wells. Pressure-transient well-test analysis procedures are based on classical mathematical relationships between flow rate, pressure and time, which are directly analogous to the theory of heat transfer.
