  • Publication number: 20220099438
    Abstract: Dimensions of a tool moving in/out of a well may be measured during well operations. The measured dimensions of the tool may be used to analyze the well operations. Analysis of well operations may include identification of types of well operations being performed at the well, monitoring of the well operations, benchmarking of the well operations, identification of tools being used in the well operations, and/or other analysis of the well operations.

  • Publication number: 20210348505
    Abstract: Sensors may be located remotely from a rig of a well. The sensors may operate independently of the rig, and generate remote sensor information that characterizes operating characteristics of the well independent of the rig. The operation of the well may be analyzed based on the remote sensor information.

  • Patent number: 10787883
    Abstract: A testable back pressure valve can include a housing comprising a housing body. The valve can also include a valve seat coupled to the housing, where the valve seat includes a valve seat body having a first cavity and a second cavity, and where the valve seat further includes a first network of channels disposed in the valve seat body. The valve can further include a valve head movably disposed within the first cavity of the valve seat. The valve can also include a piston follower movably disposed within the second cavity of the valve seat, where the valve head is fixedly coupled to the piston follower. The valve can further include a travel piston movably disposed within the second cavity of the valve seat, where the travel piston is moveably coupled to the piston follower.

  • Patent number: 10689947
    Abstract: A testable back pressure valve can include a body. The valve can also include a first flow regulating device movably disposed within a top end of the body, where the first flow regulating device is configured to move from a first default position to a first position based on first flow characteristics of a first fluid that flows into a top end of the body toward a bottom end of the body. The valve can further include a second flow regulating device movably disposed within the bottom end of the body. The valve can also include a network of channels disposed within the body between the first flow regulating device and the second flow regulating device.

  • Patent number: 10563778
    Abstract: A multi-well pad for fracturing a subterranean formation can include a valve assembly that includes a shuttle valve, an inlet, a first outlet, and a second outlet, where the inlet is coupled to a fracturing pump, where the first outlet is coupled to a first well, where the second outlet is coupled to a second well, where first shuttle valve has a first position and a second position. The fracturing pump and the first well can form a continuous first path through the valve assembly while closing off a second path between the fracturing pump and the second well when the shuttle valve is in the first position. The fracturing pump and the second well can form a continuous second path through the valve assembly while closing off the first path between the fracturing pump and the first well when the shuttle valve is in the second position.

  • Patent number: 9376883
    Abstract: A wellhead system is provided. In one embodiment, the wellhead system includes a bypass sleeve for temporarily isolating portions of a wellhead assembly from pressurized fracing fluid. The bypass sleeve may include a generally tubular body having a tool interface, a lock ring disposed at least partially around the body, and an anti-rotation device coupled to the body. In some embodiments, the anti-rotation device includes a resilient member disposed in a cavity in the body, and an anti-rotation member biased away from the body by the resilient member. The anti-rotation member of some embodiments extends radially outward from the body.
