The article is devoted to an actual issue: the development of internal downhole heat exchangers technology to combat hydration in injection wells. Purpose: development of conceptual solutions for the use of geothermal coolant in the internal well heat exchanger of the injection well. A scheme of an internal downhole heat exchanger with a geothermal heat carrier has been developed, and includes a supply line of a geothermal carrier through the heat exchange surface of the injection well into the productive reservoir of the oil field. The scheme provides targeted utilization of thermobaric energy of a geothermal source to combat hydration in the injection well. A mathematical apparatus for describing the process of heat utilization and heat exchange in injection well is proposed. It is established that the capacity of one geothermal well discovered at the oil depths in the Dnipro-Donetsk basin is sufficient to eliminate hydration in 1-3 injection wells, and determines the feasibility of their joint work.
