Numerical simulation of permafrost defrosting as a result of exploitation of oil wells

Reporter: Filimonov M.Y.

The zone of permafrost takes 65% of Russian territory and is extremely important for our economy, because about 93% of Russian natural gas and 75% of oil is produced here. When operating the wells an important task is to reduce the influence of heat on frozen soil. To study this process a 3D model of thermal interaction in well-ground is designed, taking into account a number of physical factors which is affected on distribution of heat. Based on developed software, a series of computations of permafrost defrosting in the area of well-ground is carried out, taking into account an actual thermal characteristics of soils.
