  • Publication number: 20210293110
    Abstract: A technique enables maintenance of sufficient clearance between a wellhead and, for example, a mobile rig. The technique facilitates support of a cable, e.g. an antenna suspension cable, at the wellhead without detrimentally affecting the desired clearance. According to an embodiment, a flange system is used in combination with a cable clamp assembly at a wellhead. The flange system may comprise a flange having a connector portion configured for coupling with the wellhead. The flange also comprises a cylinder portion coupled to the connector portion such that the cylinder portion extends into a corresponding bore of the wellhead. The cable clamp assembly is configured to clamp around and support a cable extending down through the wellhead. The cable clamp assembly is supported within the cylinder portion of the flange such that the cable clamp assembly is at least partially disposed within the wellhead.

  • Patent number: 10495775
    Abstract: A method for correcting geomagnetic reference field includes measuring Earth magnetic field elements at least one known geodetic position. Earth magnetic field elements are measured at a position proximate the location. A disturbance function is determined from the Earth magnetic field measurements made at the at least one known geodetic position. A magnetic disturbance field measurement transfer function is estimated between the at the at least one known geodetic and proximate positions to estimate a disturbance function at the proximate position. The estimated magnetic disturbance function is used to correct geomagnetic reference field or measurements made at the location.

  • Patent number: 10227862
    Abstract: A method for determining position of a wellbore in the Earth's subsurface can include: actuating a seismic energy source at a selected location along the wellbore; detecting seismic energy with sensors located at known geodetic positions along the wellbore, the detected seismic energy being at least partially reflected by a casing of an adjacent wellbore; and determining the geodetic position of the wellbore at the selected location from the detected seismic energy.

  • Publication number: 20180038983
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for geophysical surveying are disclosed. In one embodiment, an airborne vehicle may obtain magnetic measurements in a location around a drilling site. The magnetic measurements may be used to calculate a localized disturbance magnetic field resulting from, for example, solar flares. The localized disturbance magnetic field may be used to calculate a declination value and, thus, a wellbore position with improved accuracy.

  • Publication number: 20170254915
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for geophysical surveying are disclosed. In one embodiment, a vehicle may obtain magnetic measurements in a location around a drilling site while a marine vehicle maintains an approximately stationary position nearby. The magnetic measurements from the two vehicles may be used to calculate a localized magnetic crustal field. The localized magnetic crustal field may be used to calculate a geomagnetic reference field that may be used to calculate and/or adjust wellbore position with improved accuracy.

  • Publication number: 20160208586
    Abstract: A technique facilitates miming of casing strings in a multilateral well. A conductor tube may be placed into a hole formed in a seabed. A plurality of oriented casings is deployed in the conductor tube and the oriented casings have a specific exit angle and azimuthal orientation. The orientation of each oriented casing is used to direct a corresponding drilling of a borehole and placement of a casing in the borehole in a manner which does not interfere with other boreholes and casings.
