Wellbore Heat transfer.

Systematic modeling of heat transfer in wellbores. Current work plan is to develop heat transfer models for subsea completion in deep water settings.

Transient Transport Processes.

Modeling fluid temperature and pressure during shut-in, startup, or rate change is complicated by the coupled nature of these transport processes. We are using numerical and semi-analytical approaches for modeling transient flow of heat, mass, and momentum in wellbores. Future work in this area includes modeling wellbore transient heat transfer to convert wellhead pressure during water injection in unconventional formations. Analysis of warmback data to improve DTS visualization and interpretation is another important future research topic.

Wellbore/Reservoir Fluid Flow

Many processes require an integrated approach to modeling fluid flow and pressure drop in both the reservoir and the wellbore. We are using such an approach to better understand the process of liquid loading of gas wells and well blow out.
