Well Testing Techniques:
Tests conducted on a well to learn about the reservoir conditions, estimate the wells production/injection potential, and quantify the overall resource.

Introduction
"Well testing procedures are carried out on all newly drilled wells to determine the characteristics of the well and the formations it passes through. Most often the main goal of the well tests is to determine the productivity potential of a new well. Well testing involves an array of measurements and multiple types of downhole instruments for gathering information on the well characteristics." cannot be used as a page name in this wiki.

Use in Geothermal Exploration
"Well tests are conducted to quantify well characteristics, production potential, and reservoir properties. Well tests are essential for exploration and production drilling, well maintenance, and geothermal field management. The tests ultimately help in optimal and sustainable utilization of the geothermal resource." cannot be used as a page name in this wiki.

Field Procedures
The given value was not understood.
Well testing involves lowering numerous types of sensors down the well. Most often a well logging truck equipped with a wireline winch is used.

Best Practices
Well tests are normally conducted upon completion of drilling, but before removal of the drill rig so that the drill rig pump can be used for some of the tests.
