Well Test – Consent Requirements
Key Compliance During Well Test
Use efficient burners and consider the need for well test.
If undertaking extended well test, ensure that the rate of oil production complies with the requirements of the Consent for Test Production.
If undertaking extended well test, make monthly reports to the regulatory authority detailing the previous months extended well test details. Notify regulatory authority of extended well test completion and inform them of production status of well.
If flare drop out occurs during well test operation, cease operations and report oil spill via PON1 to DESNZ. Note: a permit/exemption is no longer required for flare drop-out.
