transient rate and pressure test analysis

1. n. [Well Testing]
The analysis of transient rate and pressure data taken while a well is flowing at variable rates. The analysis uses either deconvolution or convolution to correct for the flow-rate variations and can make drawdown data interpretable. It has also been applied to correct for afterflow during the buildup.
