%X The physical property and rheological behavior parameters of the flow in the
wellbore are sensible functions of temperature. It is of fundamental
importance to calculate the temperature field for the optimization design
of an oil/gas production scheme. Based on the thermal conduction theory, a
mathematical model is formulated for the temperature calculation of the wellbore
for mechanical recovery wells. The influences of such factors as the well
yield, water content, well depth, pipe radius, ambient temperature and
geothermal gradient, on the wellhead temperature are investigated.
