transient-pressure response

1. n. [Well Testing]
The pressure response resulting from changes in a well's production rate. This includes drawdown, in which the pressure falls in response to the production of fluids; buildups, in which the pressure rises after a well is shut in; and falloffs, in which the pressure falls after an injection well is shut in.
