171. Before the start of the completion operations, the authorization holder must carry out pressure and leak tests on the casings, the strings that will be acted upon, the valve, injection and wellhead pipes and any other component that was not submitted to a pressure and leak test. The tests must be carried out at a pressure that allows confirmation of the integrity of the components where they are submitted to the maximum pressure provided for in the technical program.
The integrity is confirmed and the authorization holder may start the completion operations if the stabilized pressure is at least 90% of the pressure applied over a minimum interval of 10 minutes.
