Abstract

Borehole operations play a crucial role in managing various subsurface activities related to energy, including energy storage, geothermal energy production, CO2 sequestration, oil and gas extraction, wastewater disposal, and thermal recovery processes. In recent times, intelligent well technologies, such as long deviated multi-lateral wells equipped with advanced inflow control valves, have been employed to enhance field profitability and operational reliability. Additionally, different wellbore designs are utilized to efficiently extract heat from the subsurface in advanced geothermal approaches. To ensure accurate modeling, prediction, and optimization of all these energy production processes, it is essential to employ fully-coupled models that accurately capture thermal multi-phase compositional flow and transport in both the reservoir and the boreholes...
