  • Publication number: 20190353147
    Abstract: A chemical injection pump system includes a reversible and controllable electric motor driving a cam wheel having a pressure ramp and a suction ramp, which rotates about an axis; and at least injection pump having a reciprocating plunger which is actuated by rotation of the cam wheel. The motor may be an outrunner brushless DC motor having a rotor which acts as the cam wheel, with an outer surface defining a cam profile having a pressure ramp and a suction ramp, which rotates about a stator axis. The system may be controlled to independently operate two or more injection pumps at different injection rates.

  • Publication number: 20190128268
    Abstract: A method and system for controlling injection rates of an injection pump powered by an electric motor, below a minimum speed of the electric motor, includes the implementation of an off and on duty cycle for the motor. The method and system includes automatic transitioning between continuous operation and off and on duty cycle operation.

  • Patent number: 9813000
    Abstract: A method and system for maintaining consistent output for a pump powered by an electric motor, is provided, including: sending electrical measurements regarding power applied to the motor to a controller; determining if the electrical measurements indicate a power variation; changing the parameters of output from the motor to compensate for the variation. The system uses a controller configured to receive electrical measurements regarding power input to the motor, to determine if the electrical measurements indicate a power variation; and to change the parameters of output from the motor to compensate for the variation.

  • Patent number: 7747388
    Abstract: In connection with thermal recovery projects, a system determines temperature gradients for a heat affected zone associated with a subterranean hydrocarbon reservoir. An exemplary system includes a plurality of temperature sensors distributed in the wellbore at least partially along the heat affected zone. A downhole processor positioned proximate and substantially outside of the heat affected zone receives and digitizes the temperature measurements. A data link such as a data cable coupled to the downhole processor conveys the temperature measurements to a surface interface.

  • Patent number: 7246662
    Abstract: A device for determining a location of an interface between a first fluid and second fluid includes a non-mechanical sensor that measures a selected parameter of interest relating to the fluid surrounding the sensor (“the surrounding fluid”) and a processor for processing the sensor measurements. The non-mechanical sensor measures a parameter relating to the surround fluid without physically co-acting with the surrounding fluid. Exemplary parameters such as thermal properties, electrical properties, fluid properties, and magnetic properties can be measured. The processor is programmed to process the sensor measurements to identify one or more characteristics in the measurements that can indicate the nature of the fluid being measured and thereby determine the location of the interface. The determined location can be used to operate a downhole device such as a pump, to provide real-time monitoring of well conditions, to record data for long-term reservoir characterization, or to actuate an alarm.

  • Publication number: 20050115708
    Abstract: A method for transmitting signals through a metal tubular includes the steps of transmitting modulated electromagnetic signals through a non magnetic metal section of the metal tubular, detecting the signals or a field associated with the signals, and controlling or monitoring devices or operations associated with the metal tubular responsive to the signals. A material, geometry, treatment, and alloying of the non magnetic metal section are selected to optimize signal transmission therethrough. A system for performing the method includes the metal tubular and the non magnetic metal section. The system can also include a transmitter device configured to move through the metal tubular emitting the electromagnetic signals, an antenna on the outside of the non magnetic metal section configured to detect the electromagnetic signals, and a receiver-control circuit configured to generate control signals responsive to the electromagnetic signals.
