Abstract

In the practice of pumping oil wells, thermo-boric conditions occurring inside the well are important. The neglect(or omission) of heat exchange processes occurring in the well may lead to a decrease in the performance of pumping equipment, reduced turnaround time and accidental failures of downhole equipment. In this paper, on the basis of the obtained theoretical and experimental conclusions made by well-known experts in the field of hydromechanics and thermodynamics, the issues of heat exchange processes occurring inside an operating well are considered. The heat transfer for a mixture of water - feldspar particles with a turbulent mode of motion in the annular space is investigated. The combined effect of the particle size on the heat transfer coefficient, the hydraulic diameter of the annular space, the ratio of the hydraulic diameter to the average particle diameter, the concentration of particles in the mixture, the Prandtl and Reynolds numbers is experimentally shown. It has been established that omission of the influence of a mechanical impurity in determining the heat exchange coefficient may lead to its understating more than 2 times, and the temperature of the electric motor - by 10 °C. The selection of the technological parameters of the operation of the ESP in such a way that the value of dp falls within the interval from 2 to 6 will help improve heat exchange and protect the electro motor from overheating.
