The Design, Performance, and Analysis of Slug Tests

This edition serves as a resource for field practitioners in the planning, performance, and analysis of slug tests that will produce more reliable parameter estimates. It updates the previously presented material and expands the coverage into new areas. It includes a new set of practical guidelines for the design, performance, and analysis of slug tests; all new field examples; extensive coverage of slug tests in wells; considerations for barometric pressure changes; and discussions of new software for the processing and analysis of slug-test data.
