The continuous exploration and development of oil wells increases the risk of leakage from abandoned wells and brings challenges to the traditional plugging and abandonment technology. In order to overcome the above problems, a thermite plugging and abandonment technology is proposed in this field. The technology uses the aluminothermic reaction to melt the original or set material for sealing. The natural convection under different confinement conditions directly affects the heat flux transfer in the heat transfer process. In order to study the melting effect of the thermite reaction on sandstone, based on the heat conduction theory, a heat conduction model based on the temperature release law of the thermite reaction was established. The numerical simulation results show that the surrounding heat transfer conditions are the key factors affecting the heat transfer effect in the axial and radial directions without considering the particle size and dosage of the thermite itself. This work is of great significance for studying the temperature law of thermite reaction release and the future research of thermite plugging and abandonment technology.
Key words: Thermite plugging and abandonment technology / natural convection under / closed environment / Aluminothermic melting effect
