Subsurface Temperature and PressureI.Subsurface Temperaturea. BHT bottom hole rock temperature from well and drill stem testingb. Geothermal Gradienti. Range 1.8 to 5.5 oC / 100mii. Average: 2.5 oC / 100 m(25 oC / 1 km)c. Heat Flowi. Heat Flux = Geothermal Gradient x Thermal Conductivity of Rock1. transfer of heat energy per unit area2. Units: watts m-2 = (oC m-1)(W m-1 oC-1)3. Watt = power = energy transfer per unit timea. 1 watt = 1 joule/sec = 1 N-m/secii.
