Well Testing

Well Testing

Well testing is commonly the last task to be planned in an exploration project. Often this leads to the design and execution being carried out in a rush by personnel for whom testing is not their main focus and awareness of all stakeholder needs may be limited. This can result in objectives not being clearly defined, money not spent wisely and potential loss of very significant data needed to evaluate development cases.
