  • Publication number: 20210156246
    Abstract: A combined telemetry system that can be used while drilling a wellbore consists of a multi-hop telemetry method and a single-hop telemetry method combined in parallel. The multi-hop and single-hop methods can be operated in parallel, for example, so that each telemetry method caries data concurrently from the Measuring-While-Drilling tool located in the Bottom-Hole-Assembly. The multi-hop and single-hop methods can also be operated in series, for example, so that data from the Measuring-While-Drilling tool located in the Bottom-Hole-Assembly are first carried with the single-hop telemetry method and then transferred to the multi-hop telemetry method at one or more node(s) close to the surface. Preferably, the multi-hop telemetry method can also carry data from along-string sensors. Another combined telemetry system that can be used while drilling a wellbore consists of two single-hop telemetry methods combined in parallel.

  • Patent number: 10989823
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a neutron detector that for the first time permits the construction of large detector areas of approximately 1 m2 to 2 m2, with a spatial resolution of the neutrons of under 2 mm. It is additionally possible in the case of the modular construction in a stack arrangement to attain detection sensitivities that are comparable to 3He counter tubes (ca. 60%) or, with a greater number of detector elements, higher. By using thin substrate plates—such as aluminum sheets—and omission of the external pressure vessels, the neutron detectors are relatively lightweight despite their large dimensions and can be produced inexpensively.

  • Publication number: 20200370427
    Abstract: A flow-off telemetry system and method of communicating information from a downhole location in a borehole to a surface location while fluid circulation is off. A string is conveyed in the wellbore to define an inner bore and an annulus. During a flow-off condition, an inner bore sealing element closes the inner bore to create a first standing column of fluid in the inner bore, and an annulus sealing element closes the annulus to form a second standing column of fluid in the annulus. A bypass valve in the string at a downhole location between the first standing column of fluid and the second standing column of fluid is activated to generate a pressure pulse including information for performing an action. The pressure pulse is received at a pressure sensor at the surface location and a controller performs an action in response to the information in the pressure pulse.
