    Abstract: Temperature data collected from a distributed temperature sensing system may be used to prepare a temporal thermal profile of the wellbore. The temporal thermal profile may be used to determine a generalized heat transfer coefficient (k) and/or a generalized geothermal profile (Tae). The temporal thermal profile and the generalized heat transfer coefficient (k) and/or the generalized geothermal profile (Tae) may be used to estimate thermal properties of a wellbore, such as well as fluid and flow characteristics. A heat of hydration index may also be determined based on the temporal thermal profile.

  • Publication number: 20210238994
    Abstract: System and methods for detecting a composition in a wellbore during a cementing operation. An electrochemical cell can be disposed towards an end of a wellbore. The electrochemical cell can generate electrical energy in response to a physical presence of a composition at the electrochemical cell. The composition can be pumped from a surface of the wellbore during a cementing operation of the wellbore. Further, a telemetry signal indicating the physical presence of the composition at the electrochemical cell can be generated based on the electrical energy generated by the electrochemical cell. As follows, the telemetry signal can be transmitted to the surface of the wellbore.

  • Publication number: 20200182043
    Abstract: First fluid flows from a wellbore through a flow assembly and into a casing inserted into the wellbore. An optical cable is arranged on a bobbin attached to a bottom surface of the flow assembly. The optical cable of the flow assembly is released into the flow of the first fluid and is positioned downhole from the flow assembly by the flow of the first fluid. One or more signals are received via the optical cable. A determination is made that an annulus between the casing and a wall of the wellbore is filled with a second fluid based on the one or more signals. Flow of the second fluid is stopped based on the determination.

  • Patent number: 10634025
    Abstract: A skinning apparatus and a method of skinning a porous ceramic. The apparatus includes an axial skinning manifold. The axial skinning manifold includes a curved adaptive pipe to flow cement in a circumferential direction from an inlet at a first position and through an adaptive opening along an inner bend of the curve through a land channel disposed along the inner bend. The land channel emits the cement at a constant velocity from a land opening extending proximate the first position to a second position spaced apart from the first position. The land outlet emits cement at a constant velocity around the outer periphery of the porous ceramic to dispose a uniform skin thereon as the porous ceramic moves axially relative to the land outlet.
