Two different slug test methods including: i) slug test using the standard slug rod and ii) pneumatic slug test are conducted in different well/depth in Danphuong field site for a comparative analysis. These methods are examined at least 3 times for each well to estimate hydraulic conductivities by using Hvorslev. The results show correlation between two slug test methods is very hight with R2 = 0,93. Slug tests methods have several advantages and also disadvantage compare to each other.
