The improved model developed in Part 1 for predicting heat losses and pressure changes in steam injection wells is evaluated. It shows good agreement with limited field data. The improved model is used to predict the effects of steam injection time, rate and pressure, well depth and tubing diameter on heat losses, bottomhole pressure and downhole steam quality. A design example is presented to illustrate the solution method for a common field operations problem.
