In this paper, the axial stress and deformation of high temperature high pressure super-deep deviated gas wells are studied. A new model presents multiple nonlinear equation systems, which comprehensively consider the axial load of the tubular string, internal and external fluid pressure, normal pressure between the tube and well wall, friction and the viscous friction of fluid flowing under variable temperature and pressure fields, instead of the traditional methods. The initial axial load, the pressure effect, the friction, temperature effect and sucker-rod pumping effect are derived using a dimensionless iterative interpolation algorithm. Basic data from the X Well (high temperature-high pressure gas well), 6115 meters deep, are used for case history calculations. The results and some useful conclusions could provide technical reliability in oil and gas well testing design.

"My experiences in publishing a paper with Bentham Open is good. I must say that the speed of publication in The Open Petroleum Engineering Journal is very fast. It takes only two month for the pioneer reviewing process. The delay was caused by me. And what’s more, the publisher’s office is quite helpful. I guess they are dealing with thousands emails every week, but they process my request in a very short period of time."
