Title
(EN) EXPANDABLE MESHED COMPONENT FOR GUIDING AN UNTETHERED DEVICE IN A SUBTERRANEAN WELL
(FR) COMPOSANT MAILLÉ EXPANSIBLE POUR GUIDER UN DISPOSITIF NON ATTACHÉ DANS UN PUITS SOUTERRAIN
Abstract
(EN) Embodiments provide an expandable meshed component (200) for guiding an untethered measurement device (150) used in a subterranean well. The expandable meshed component includes an uphole radial portion (202), an intermediate radial portion (204), a downhole radial portion (206), an outer meshed wall (208), and an inner meshed wall (210). The expandable meshed component has a density less than a fluidic component occupying the space. A method for guiding an untethered measurement device used in a subterranean well includes deploying a compressed expandable meshed component tethered to the untethered measurement device disconnecting the compressed expandable meshed component and the untethered measurement device, and releasing a sleeve (226) surrounding the compressed expandable meshed component such that the expandable meshed component expands, ascends, and fits into an annulus.
(FR) Des modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent un composant maillé expansible (200) pour guider un dispositif de mesure non attaché (150) utilisé dans un puits souterrain. Le composant maillé expansible comprend une partie radiale de haut de trou (202), une partie radiale intermédiaire (204), une partie radiale de fond de trou (206), une paroi maillée externe (208) et une paroi maillée interne (210). Le composant maillé expansible a une densité inférieure à un composant fluidique occupant l'espace. Un procédé de guidage d'un dispositif de mesure non attaché utilisé dans un puits souterrain consiste à déployer un composant maillé expansible comprimé attaché au dispositif de mesure non attaché, séparer le composant maillé expansible comprimé et le dispositif de mesure non attaché et libérer un manchon (226) entourant le composant maillé expansible comprimé, de telle sorte que le composant maillé expansible se dilate, monte et s'ajuste dans un espace annulaire.
