Title: WIRELESS COMMUNICATION BETWEEN DOWNHOLE COMPONENTS AND SURFACE SYSTEMS
Abstract:
An embodiment of a communication system for communicating between a wired pipe string in a borehole and a surface location includes at least a first wired pipe downhole component and a second wired pipe downhole component in the wired pipe string, a coupler configured to transmit a transmission signal between the first wired pipe downhole component and the second wired pipe downhole component, and a wireless transmission assembly in at least one of the first wired pipe downhole component and the second wired pipe downhole component. The wireless transmission assembly is configured to wirelessly transmit a wireless transmission signal to a receiver antenna, and the receiver antenna is disposed at the surface location and configured to receive the wireless transmission signal.
