FIELD: oil and gas industry.
SUBSTANCE: method consists in excitation of an electric current in a metal string in a well by means of a ground-based generator connected with one contact to surface part of the metal string and with the other contact to a receiving electrode on the well surface. Commutation of a dielectric insert dividing the metal string in the well into upper and lower parts is performed. Another string of metal pipes lowered to that well is used as the receiving electrode. Therefore, an electric circuit of a metal string in the well and a receiving electrode is formed, via which direct current stabilised as to the value is transmitted from the ground-based generator.

The proposed group of inventions relates to the field of downhole data transmission from the well to the surface electromagnetic communication channel and can be used for logging in the operation.
There is a method of creating electromagnetic communication channel, which consists in the excitation of the electric current in the column of metal tubes separated by a dielectric insert, and registration on the surface of the induced potential difference between the column of drill pipe and a remote point from the wellhead. This induced potential is modulated appropriately coded signal (information), but are required for the excitation current energy is generated on the face by a downhole generator, discharging of the power flow of washing fluid generated by the drilling pump (A.A. Molchanov, G.S. Abramov. Wireless system for studies of oil and gas wells (theory and practice) / Under the General editorship of A.A. Molchanov - Moscow: JSC "VNIIEM", 2003).
The disadvantages of the method are unstable signal magnitude associated with the changing conditions of the currents in soils and limited downhole power generator, and the inability to use without hole (borehole) energy source, which limits the scope of the system.
Know the ten method of downhole data transmission by electromagnetic communication channel by generating information in the form of electrical signals and transmit them to the mouth of the well, the string of drill pipes with electric separator, in this case, before transmitting information to a string of drill pipe above electrical separator serves DC voltage (U.S. Pat. Of the Russian Federation No. 2426878, prior. 02.02.2010, publ. 20.08.2011). In a borehole containing a column of drill pipe with an electric separator, include a downhole transmitter connected to the upper and lower electrodes of the separator. At the wellhead place the constant voltage source connected to the column of drill pipe and at the other end through the receiving device with the receiving electrode. Constant voltage polarizes the metal surface of the drill pipe, creating on the metal surface of the electrical double layer, which reduces the surface conductivity of the metal, preventing the closure of the current transmission on the column of drill pipe, thereby increasing the power of the received signal.
A disadvantage of the known solution is the use of downhole transmitter, which is limited by the capacity of a standalone power source, which, as mentioned above, limits the scope of application of the device.
The known method of transmission/reception geophysical data during the drilling of the wireless electromagnetic communication channel from downhole to the surface (U.S. Pat. Of the Russian Federation No. 2273732, prior. 21.05.2004, publ. 10.04.2006).
In the known method modulate the voltage generating signal to the surface by connecting the poles of land generator respectively to the string of drill pipe and a remote point from the wellhead (receiving electrode) and the bottom electric the dipole carry out signal ground of the generator. Allocate a clock frequency of ground generator and synchronous with her commute the encrypted message, the electric dipole on the bottom. At the wellhead measure the current generation by highlighting pulsations using synchronous detection. Measured at the mouth of the magnitude of the ripple caused by the switching of the electric dipole on the face, judge geophysical parameters to be drilled formation on the surface. The frequency of ground generator on the surface change for better conditions of signal reception on the face.
The disadvantage of this method is that it assumes, in the electric dipole receiver signal from a ground-based generator, which determines the frequency at which the electric dipole should be switched, which complicates the design of an electric dipole.
The distance from the wellhead grounding electrode weakens the signal, which passes through the rock with different geological properties, the signal may disappear (in salt interlayers) and distorted with the passage of weakly conductive layers and the reliability of communication falls.
The task of the group of inventions is to improve the reliability of information transmission from downhole electromagnetic communication channel and the expansion of its p is imeneniya.
This task is solved in that in the method of transmitting information by electromagnetic communication channel during well operation, comprising the excitation electric current in a metal casing in a well using ground-based generator that is connected to one contact to ground the metal parts of the column and the other contact to the receiving electrode on the surface of the well, switching the dielectric insert that separates the metal column in the well on the upper and lower parts, and obtaining information from the borehole bottom, depending on the ripple caused by the switching of the dielectric insert, as the receiving electrode use a different column of metal pipes, lowered into the well, and create the electrical circuit of the metal column in the well and the reception electrode, which is passed stabilized constant current from the ground of the generator, while obtaining information from the borehole bottom is carried out in dependence on the modulation voltage required to stabilize the DC ground of the generator (source of stabilized voltage) when the change in the effective value of the resistance of steel columns, caused by the switching of the dielectric insert. As the receiving electrode is used, for example, a metal pump is about tubing (tubing), which is concentric with a metal column with a dielectric insert.
Applying the device to implement the method, containing ground the generator is connected with one contact to ground the metal parts of the column and the other contact to the receiving electrode on the surface of the borehole, dielectric insert that separates the metal column in the well on the upper and lower parts, the key to opening and closing of the contacts of the upper and lower parts of the metal columns, where as the ground of the generator used source of the stabilized DC, and between the said contacts has a recording unit changes the voltage of this current, in addition, as the receiving electrode used another column of metal pipes, lowered into the borehole, for example, Tubing, in which concentric metal column, for example, a column of hollow metal rods with dielectric insert. The upper part of the metal columns and tubing are isolated from each other.
The figure presents the device to implement the method.
The essence of the method. When operating well inside the metal tubing down a column of hollow metal rods, which in prize-flow area set submersible pump for pumping fluid. In the process ekspluatacijnadil to obtain information about the status of the prize-flow zone, for example, using electromagnetic communication channel. To do this, on the surface by using a constant current source, connected to one contact (clip) to ground the metal parts of the column, which may be a column of hollow metal rods, and another contact (clip) - to the receiving electrode on the mouth, which use a different metal pipe, such as tubing, into the well serves a constant current, stable value, which, passing through the metal column (the column of hollow metal rods), separated by a dielectric insert, generates an electromagnetic field that creates a potential difference between the metal casing and isolated part of it.
To send the message from downhole electromagnetic channel close or unlock (commute) key lower and upper metal columns, changing the effective value of the conductivity between the receiving electrode (the other of the metal column) of the constant current source and a metal column with a dielectric insert. With the closure of the key specified effective conductivity increases, and the voltage at the terminals of the constant current source falls and is registered by the registration unit, for example, a differential voltmeter. The change in the measured voltage is judged on PA is amerah drilled formation. Duration and sequence of closures of the key is determined by the encryption module downhole unit of measurement (Fig. not shown due to being well-known). Thus, the useful signal is the change in the voltage at the terminals of the current source that maintains a constant (stable) current, which is determined by the conditions of transfer - conductive layer. Metal column rods and metal column tubing in the upper part electrically separated.
The implementation of the method can be carried out is presented by the device.
The device includes a constant current source 1 is connected to one contact 2 to ground the metal casing of hollow rods (steel columns) 3, and the other contact to the receiving electrode 4 metal tubing 5 (other metal column), in which concentric set column metal hollow rods 3. Between these contacts set to block registration of the change of voltage, for example, differential voltmeter 6. Metal column 3 in the well are separated by a dielectric insert 7 on the upper part and lower part, which are closed/opened by a key 8. In the critical zone of the metal column 3 attached to the submerged pump 9 for pumping fluid. At the wellhead metal columns is 3 and the tubing 5 are separated by a seal 10 of a dielectric material. POS. 11 - scratcher-centralizer of dielectric material. The dotted line shows the generated electrical circuit.
Ground the generator 1 produces a constant regulated amount of current that is passing through the metal column 3, separated by a dielectric insert 7, generates an electromagnetic field that creates a potential difference between the metal casing 3 and isolated its upper part.
With the closure of the key 8 effective conductivity increases and the voltage source constant current (ground generator) 1 falls, which is registered by the differential voltmeter 6, connected to the contacts 2 and 4 of the specified power source. However, changing the potential difference is modulated appropriately coded signal (information). Because at the wellhead installed gasket 10 of a dielectric material, and the hole in the upper part of the metal columns placed scratcher-centralizer 11 (may be a few pieces) of dielectric material, the metal column rod 3 and the metal column tubing 5 are electrically separated, in addition, between the specified columns in the well is produced fluid, the conductivity of which is very small.
