A finite difference model was developed and used to simulate transient heat transfer in wells undergoing injection and production processes. The tubing temperature profiles from these simulations were then reduced to a set of algebraic equations to provide simple and effective temperature versus depth and temperature versus time estimates. Results from field tests are also presented and compared in order to validate the finite difference model.
