The aim of utilized Geothermics for Petroleum Engineers is to give in a transparent and concise shape tools of using the knowledge of temperature surveys in deep boreholes in addition to the result of box, laboratory and analytical investigations in geothermics to a large viewers. even supposing a few elements of the topic of this booklet were mentioned in numerous prior books and various papers, utilized Geothermics for Petroleum Engineers is the 1st ebook in this subject to be had to the petroleum engineering neighborhood. the target of the booklet is to offer the kingdom of data and prediction of downhole and formations temperatures in the course of good drilling, good crowning glory, shut-in and construction. utilized Geothermics for Petroleum Engineers is meant for drilling engineers (impact of increased temperatures on good drilling and final touch expertise, Arctic drilling), creation engineers (temperature regime of construction, injection and geothermal partitions, Arctic production), reservoir engineers (temperature box of reservoirs, thermal homes of formations and formation fluids), good logging engineers (interpretation of electric resistance, dust density, and temperature logs), and geophysicists and geologists (interpretation of geophysical facts, calculation of the terrestrial warmth stream, reconstruction of prior climates).

3 The surface of separation (S) of two media of different conductivities )~1 and ~2. Let T1 and T2 denote the temperatures in the two media. 49) Is. In practice, however, various modifications of the above mentioned boundary conditions are often used. 7 Dimensionless Parameters To reduce the number of variables in solving heat conduction problems the dimensionless quantities are usually used. For example, consider the equation of radial flow of heat from a cylindrical source with a radius rc. 1 Temperature of F r o z e n R o c k s Permanent ice is found on or beneath approximately twenty percent of the dry land: 75% of Alaska, 63% of Canada, and 47% of Russian Federation are covered by permafrost.
5. 4. 33) where P r is the Prandtl number, R a is the Rayleigh number, u is kinematic viscosity, a is thermal diffusivity, g is gravitational acceleration, /3 coefficient of volumetric thermal expansion, rl is the inner radius (outside radius of the drill pipe), r2 is the outer radius (inside radius of the casing or well radius), and A T is the radial temperature difference. At radiation heat is transferred by the electromagnetic waves. 34) where 5 - 5 . 7 7 5 . 10 -12 W c m - 2 K -4 is the Stefan-Boltzmann constant, e is the emissivity of the surface.
The t e m p e r a t u r e - d e p t h variation ST(x) - T * ( x ) - T(x) in this case m a y characterize the effect of one or both of these factors. Below we will consider a case of heat supply at a constant rate in one layer. This m a y occur due to radioactivity, water movement, CHAPTER 2 42 and chemical reactions. 74) where A is the heat rate per unit time per unit volume. As a general example, we will consider a three-layer case (Carslaw and Jaeger, 1959) in which A = A 1 , A = 0 in 0 < x < xl; A = A2, A = A 2 in X 1 < X < X2; /~ : )~3, A = 0 in x > x2, where )~1, )~2, /~a, A2 are constants.
