Title (EN) METHODS OF ACOUSTICALLY COMMUNICATING AND WELLS THAT UTILIZE THE METHODS
(FR) PROCÉDÉS DE COMMUNICATION ACOUSTIQUE ET PUITS UTILISANT LESDITS PROCÉDÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Methods of acoustically communicating acoustically within a wellbore (30) and wells that utilize the methods are disclosed herein. The methods generally utilize an acoustic wireless network (50) including a plurality of nodes (60) spaced-apart along a length of a tone transmission medium (100).The disclosure includes a method of conserving power in the acoustic wireless network (50).
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés de communication acoustique à l'intérieur d'un puits de forage (30) et des puits utilisant lesdits procédés. Lesdits procédés utilisent, d'une manière générale, un réseau sans fil acoustique (50) comprenant une pluralité de nœuds (60) espacés les uns des autres le long d'un milieu de transmission de tonalité (100). L'invention concerne notamment un procédé de conservation d'énergie dans le réseau sans fil acoustique (50).
