Welltesting .. in daylight hours only ?

Does anyone have any experience with challenging the assertion that,
during a welltest, first oil (or gas) can only be brought to surface
during daylight hours ???

It would seem that there are differing "rules" in place.

This precaution was very widespread many years ago, but we know that
a lot of companies have risk assessed this and either raised
dispensations or changed policy .. with mitigatins including
provision of floodlights etc.,

Do you differentiate between oil and gas, wildcats and appraisal
wells, areas of known Hydrogen Sulphide etc., etc., ?

Please share with us any information that we could use to assess the
current situation.
