Abstract

The purpose of study is to analyze the transient thermal problem of the circulation fluids in the riserless well, which is critical to well integrity, and thus to operational safety of the well. The transient heat transfer model is based on the theory of the energy balance and control volumes to solve the downhole circulation fluids temperature distribution in a riserless well. Examples demonstrate the calculated circulation fluids temperature distribution in the wellbore by using this model.
