transient-pressure testing

1. n. [Well Testing]
The pressure measurements recorded as a function of time, usually in the wellbore near the productive interval, after the flow rate of the well is changed. These form the basis for transient well-test analysis, and are primarily used for determining reservoir-rock properties and producing-formation limits.
