Companies must test their wells on a regular basis. Below we list our requirements and procedures for submitting oil and gas well test data. 

What We Require

All companies must submit their current well test data electronically—we only accept pressure ASCII standard (PAS) format. Hard copy reports will only be accepted for well tests done before January 1, 1999.

In addition to our well testing requirements, companies must submit

  • gas and fluid analyses,
  • absolute open flow,
  • acoustic well-sounder data,
  • static- and transient-gauge pressure data, and
  • drill stem tests.

See our SERCO List (updated July 2019) for five-digit codes, which we assign to all producing and service companies, and the corresponding PAS files.
