Histogram of the dimensionless production temperature \(\Theta _p\) when the dimensionless wellbore spacing L/(2R) is equal 0.4, the dimensionless standard deviation of the aperture \(\sigma _h/\left\langle w \right\rangle\) is equal to 0.25, and the Hurst coefficient \(\zeta\) is equal to 0.8. The results are for the production period when the base case (no aperture variations) reaches \(\Theta _{p,0}=0.8\). A Gaussian fit results in a mean and standard deviation of 0.783 and 0.072, respectively
