solution gas drive

1. n. [Well Completions]
A type of reservoir-drive system in which the energy for the transport and production of reservoir fluids is derived from the gas dissolved in the fluid. As reservoir fluids enter the wellbore, changing pressure conditions cause the gas to break from solution to create a commingled flow of gas and liquid that aids production.
