Title
(EN) SMART WELLHEAD
(FR) TÊTE DE PUITS INTELLIGENTE
Abstract
(EN)
Smart wellhead assemblies with sensors for detecting positions of components within the bores of the wellhead assemblies are provided. In some instances, the sensors can be used to detect one or more of landing, locking, or concentricity of hangers, packoffs, or other internal wellhead components within bores. In one example, a method of installing a hanger within a wellhead includes lowering the hanger within the wellhead and using one or more sensors to detect when the hanger is at a target location. The method can also include activating a locking mechanism of the hanger and using the one or more sensors to detect when the locking mechanism has secured the hanger within the wellhead. Additional systems, devices, and methods are also disclosed.

La présente invention concerne des ensembles têtes de puits intelligentes ayant des capteurs pour détecter des positions de composants à l'intérieur des alésages des ensembles têtes de puits. Dans certains cas, les capteurs peuvent être utilisés pour détecter un ou plusieurs éléments parmi l'atterrissage, le verrouillage ou la concentricité de dispositifs de suspension, de dispositifs d'étanchéité ou d'autres composants de tête de puits internes à l'intérieur des alésages. Dans un exemple, un procédé d'installation d'un dispositif de suspension à l'intérieur d'une tête de puits consiste à abaisser le dispositif de suspension à l'intérieur de la tête de puits et à utiliser un ou plusieurs capteurs pour détecter lorsque le dispositif de suspension est à un emplacement cible. Le procédé peut également consister à activer un mécanisme de verrouillage du dispositif de suspension et à utiliser le ou les capteurs pour détecter lorsque le mécanisme de verrouillage a fixé le dispositif de suspension à l'intérieur de la tête de puits. La présente invention porte également sur des systèmes, sur des dispositifs et sur des procédés supplémentaires.
