C14 THERMAL MODELING ANALYSIS FOR COMPLETION DESIGN OF DEEP OFFSHORE HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS Abstract 1 This paper examines the theoretical application of wellbore heat losses in the completion design of deep offshore heavy oil reservoirs. As production of heavy and viscous oil moves through the wellbore dynamic transfer of heat occurs between the produced fluids and the surroundings. For a deep offshore reservoir this challenge needs to be properly addressed. Simulations were performed to evaluate these challenges based on the impact that they generate on the flow rate artificial lift injection rate hydraulic fluid circulation rate tubing size and the
