This method uses the least squares ﬁt of a rational polynomial model to describe the Available online 26 June 2015 transient temperature data and also provides an analytical expression of thermal recovery processes. This expression gives the asymptotic value for ﬁnal temperature. We then apply this method for estimating Keywords: static formation temperatures of a geothermal and
