Allows for an Initial or Annual #welltest to be submitted without analysis (#PTA). Conventional static gradient surveys, with a 10–15 minute on-bottom stop, are acceptable. Sometimes the extended gauge won’t pass the 2 kPa Rule, but the gradient will, because the shut-in was >14 days. Subsurface pressures are mandatory for compliance with #AER Initial pressure regulations for Gas, Oil, and SD — Commingled wells. For annual gas well (#LNG) requirements surface AWS surveys will be rejected if the fluid level is above the top perforation. Via application, the Board may accept these pressures if there is sufficient well control data in the pool (static gradient surveys).
