... level) and 92.6 kPa (750 m above sea level) ( Liljegren et al ., 2008 ). A similar analysis can be applied to the globe temperature. The formulation is much simpler since there is no evaporation involved and only convective and radiative heat transfer are considered. The globe is a small black...

Aside from determining the drawdown, the layer permeability also affects the ratio of heat transfer by convection to conduction within a reservoir. The impact of permeability can be represented by the...

... alternative economical method to control casing growth was therefore needed. Fresh water was normally placed in the annulus, which evaporated and released to the atmosphere due to the very high steam temperature (ca. 575°F/300°C). Heat transfer to the casing was very high, causing the excessive casing...
