Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR REAL TIME DATA TRANSMISSION DURING WELL COMPLETIONS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE TRANSMISSION DE DONNÉES EN TEMPS RÉEL PENDANT DES COMPLÉTIONS DE PUITS
Abstract
(EN) Presently, existing completion tools have not been designed to couple with wired drill pipe. As such, present completions operations and tools have not been able to take advantage of the expanded bandwidth in wire drill pipe. Instead of designing new completions tools with wired pipe connections, the disclosed system and methods propose use of a short-hop or wireless system (131, 135) to transmit data from a completions tool (120) to an upper receiver module coupled to the wired drill pipe. Various measurements from the region around the completions tool may be transmitted from one or more lower wireless modules to the upper wireless module and then transmitted through the wired drill pipe to the surface. Likewise, signals may be transmitted from the surface through the wired drill pipe to the upper module and then to the lower wireless module.
(FR) L'invention a pour objet de remédier à l'inexistence actuelle d'outils de complétion conçus pour se coupler à un tube de forage câblé. À ce titre, les opérations et les outils actuels de complétion ne pouvaient jusqu'ici tirer parti de la bande passante élargie d'un tube de forage câblé. Au lieu de concevoir de nouveaux outils de complétion dotés de connexions pour tube câblé, le système et les procédés selon l'invention font appel à un système à courte portée ou sans fil pour transmettre des données d'un outil de complétion à un module récepteur supérieur couplé au tube de forage câblé. Diverses mesures provenant de la région entourant l'outil de complétion peuvent être transmises d'un ou plusieurs modules inférieurs sans fil au module supérieur sans fil, puis transmises via le tube de forage câblé jusqu'à la surface. De même, des signaux peuvent être transmis de la surface, via le tube de forage câblé, jusqu'au module supérieur puis au module inférieur sans fil.
