For shut-in durations <14 days allows for an Initial or Annual #welltest to be submitted without analysis (#PTA). Extended wireline, surface box, and acoustic well sounder (AWS) tests are submitted in the TRG.pas (transient gauge) format. If the intent is to simply pass the #AER 2 kPa Rule then flow & buildup is not necessary. Gauges need to be in/on the well for at least 8.0 h (but are checked over 6 h). If <±2.5 kPa/h/6 h is not achieved, then pressure transient analysis will be required. This can be accomplished via conventional flow & buildup techniques (PTA) or via the perforation inflow test analysis (PITA) method pioneered by the author for gas (#LNG) wells.
