Title: IDENTIFYING A COMPONENT USED IN A WELL OPERATION USING A LEAKY COAXIAL ANTENNA
Abstract:
Examples of identifying a component used in a well operation using a leaky coaxial antenna are disclosed. In aspects of the present disclosure, a method may include: reading an electronic identifier connected to a component used in the well operation via the leaky coaxial antenna to obtain a unique identifier, wherein the electronic identifier comprises the unique identifier; identifying the component from a plurality of components by comparing the unique identifier to a plurality of unique identifiers stored in a data store; receiving usage data from a sensor connected to the identified component; storing, by the processing system, the usage data in the data store for the identified component; and determining a failure risk level for the component based at least in part on the stored usage data for the identified component, wherein the leaky coaxial antenna comprises a plurality of radiating regions and a plurality of non-radiating regions.
