Time to get low priority #welltest odds-and-ends off your desk. It’s also when we should be planning for our #AER Annual Pressure Requirements. Popular annual welltest methods include acoustic well sounder (AWS) for pumping oil wells, and surface pressure build-up tests for gas (#LNG) wells. If pressure transient analysis (#PTA) is conducted for p* the 2 kPa/h and >14 day Rules are waived. In other words, with a minimum eight hours (8 h) of transient pressure data, it doesn’t matter whether-or-not the test meets the 2 kPa Rule. If the data are analyzable the p* will be compliant.
