The disadvantage of this swab should recognize the complexity of its design and the complexity of installation of the tampon in the well.

Known (RU, patent 2049909) swab for isolation zone absorption during the drilling of wells containing tape-filamentous bulking different density and weight of drillable material, while the fillers contain different sized ribbon scraps and made in the form of a beam, one end of which is rigidly connected with the end part of the cargo, and fillers with a density less than 1 g/cm3associated with the Central part of the cargo, and fillers with a density greater than 1 g/cm3with PE is everynoe part of the cargo.

The disadvantage of this swab should recognize the complexity of its design.

Known ("Geophysical wells, M., "Nedra", 1983, page 32) the design of the packer containing convertible case, and the case contains a remedy for preventing the passage of fluid, which is a layer of fibers made of made of organic polymers and/or fiberglass, and the body is made of material at least partially soluble in the borehole fluid.

The disadvantage of the packer should recognize the difficulty of placing it in the well.

The technical result obtained by the implementation of the proposed design consists of a simplification of the placement of the packer while reducing its cost.

To achieve the technical result of the proposed use of the device performing the function of the packer or temporary tube, comprising a housing in which is located the means preventing the passage of fluid, which is a layer of fibers made from organic or natural polymers, and/or fiberglass, the body is made convertible, and means preventing the passage of fluid additionally contains an element that is designed to collect fibers made from pronice the second fabric, mesh or perforated material, the housing further comprises a means of ensuring the expansion of the casing in the borehole, which represents a spring-loaded or santilly mechanism of material at least partially soluble in the borehole fluid. In the preferred embodiment, when implementing the device body perform as a single unit with the possibility of expansion in the wellbore. This facilitates the process of putting the device into the well. In the case of execution of the body as a whole in the most preferred implementation, the device further comprises means providing an extension of the casing in the borehole, representing spring, Gavrilovna-hinged or articulated santilly mechanisms (similar to the device discussed in U.S. patent 6,915,845).

In one implementation options of the device can be used helical (spiral) spring, including, in the case when the ends of the springs are connected. After the specified device is placed in the area of the creation of the packer or temporary tube, it is activated through the action of a spring or hinge umbrella mechanism that ensures the disclosure of the device. In particular, the activation device can be achieved by the destruction of the means holding the spring or hinge echanism in compressed form. Destruction is possible, in particular, due to the impact of borehole fluid on the tool retention. The device can additionally include a protective cover, which protects it during the descent into the drill column, placed in the well. The specified cover is preferably made of an easily destructible material, and when the unit is in place to establish a temporary plug or packer case mechanically or chemically destroy. When the device acquires the ability to catch the fibers from the upstream of the liquid column. In a preferred embodiment, the implementation of the housing is a wire ball or open top of the body of rotation. The body of revolution may be in the longitudinal sectional shape of a triangle, including with rounded corner, as well as the semi-circle or semicircle. On the upper surface of the housing may be further element is made of permeable fabric, mesh or perforated material and is designed to collect the fibers. The presence of a specified item allows you to more fully collect on the surface of a body falling under gravity fiber. The elements of the body can be made of a material having memory effect. This will allow changing the temperature of scarinci liquid to change the shape of the hull.

p> Also, the enclosure can be made of a material capable of destruction in terms of the well. In particular, the components of the housing can be at least partially made of poly-oxopropanoic acid, polyglycolic acid, polyethylene terephthalate, polyamides, polyurethanes or mixtures of these materials. In addition, the housing may be made at least partially from a material that can react with the products of decomposition of fibers and/or at least partially from materials, biodegradable fluid for washing the wells (in particular, of aluminum or magnesium, and their alloys). All this allows you to easily remove the packer or temporary tube by removal (dissolution) of the hull.

In addition, the housing may be made of separate dip into the well of elements forming a well specified case. In this case, the elements can be a fiber with adhesive surfaces and/or fibers are interconnected through physical (magnetic or electrostatic) interaction.

Fiber included in the means preventing the passage of fluid, preferably can be made of polyoxypropylene acid, polyglycolic acid and fiber. Specified means preventing the passage of fluid, may d is additional to contain the swelling of the particles, swelling of the fibers and the reinforcing fibers. Also means preventing the passage of fluid may optionally contain materials that can contribute to swelling or hardening of the fibers through the formation of chemical bonds within the fibers. Hereinafter the invention will be disclosed in more detail.

Initially injected into the well flexible or operational tubing, drill string, the repair column, a sliding clutch, etc. Through these elements is lowered into the well casing of a device made in the form Packed in plastic and deformed frame made of metal, elastomer or plastic (in particular, from the group of polymers of the type polyoxypropylene acid, polietilentereftalata, polyamides, polyimides, polyaramide, polyphenols). The device is delivered to the installation location of the packer under pressure through the tubing (or flexible tubing, oil casing, repair column or another column). In another embodiment, the implementation of the casing is lowered on a cable or on auxiliary rope to the place of its activation. To prevent premature actuation and mechanical protection on the way to the target point, the body is placed in a protective case. The specified case can be made of magnesium, aluminum or plastic materials (i.e. materials that are soluble in acid solutions, strong alkaline what's solutions, chemically active fluids, or materials, slowly dissolving in the borehole fluid). In another embodiment, the cover can be opened using a spring-release mechanism or mechanical contact with the end of the flexible tubing. After placing the body in the place of installation of the packer or temporary plugs and/or dissolution case happens the activation process of the body. Open the casing abuts against the wall of the borehole, which fixes the position in the well packer or packer-tube. The activation method of the hull depends on the method of delivery into the well. The enclosure can be activated using a spring-trigger mechanism, a gas filling, electrical, instrument, mechanical manipulation end of the flexible tubing, smooth wire, the trigger column, or electromagnetic mechanism. Also the case can be assembled in the bore of smaller elements (rods, adhesive fiber, flexible or spring-loaded elements, magnetic elements with the ability to self-Assembly (similar to the process of forming upstream of the filter).

After activation of the hull through him pump a certain amount of drilling fluid with a suspension of fibers. The body is covered with fibers and formed a dense packing, which prevents the passage of interstitial fluid that is formed by the packer or packer-tube, from yuusha desired area of the wellbore. In zavisit from choosing the material for forming the device in the wellbore, it is possible to obtain a temporary tube (made of materials susceptible to destruction or permanent tube (created from durable materials).

The fiber material may be glass, polymer substances (polietilentereftalat, polymer oxopropanoic acid, polyamides, polyaramide, cellulose and other polymers or Homo - or copolymers). Usually fiber pumped into the well through the repair column. The specific size of the fibers is defined by three conditions: the first is the possibility of introducing fibers into the drilling fluid in ground units, the second is the possibility of pumping the resulting suspension through the equipment to the desired level, the third is the ability of the fibers to accumulate on the device with the formation of the tube. The usual size of the fiber is from 3 to 50 mm, but it is better to choose a length in the range of 3 mm to 18 mm, the Diameter of such fiber is from 3 μm to 1 mm, the pumping Conditions are chosen so that these fibers are accumulated on the casing and formed a tight tube. Because of the increased friction educated packer/plug tightly pressed against the wall of the wellbore, in part this is achieved through the interaction of the fiber with the terrain of the wellbore.

If you want to create a temporary plug/packer, the choice of material depends on aegospotamos to destruction in the interstitial fluid. A good example of such material is a fiber made from a polymer oxopropanoic acid. Polietilentereftalata acid works well at high temperatures. To speed up the removal of the temporary packer, use an acid wash (a mixture of mineral and organicheskikh acid or alkaline leaching of sodium hydroxide, which is injected into the wellbore.

To create a permanent tube/packer need to use heat resistant fiber. A good example is fiberglass or separate artificial grass fibres "novoloid". To create temporary or permanent traffic jams, you can use combinations of these fibers or add materials that improve the parameters of the plug or packer. For example, the fiber typically has a high value of young's modulus, therefore, the fiber is more mechanically robust for application in the well than the fibers of polymers with the same diameter (polietilentereftalat or polymer oxopropanoic acid).

In particular, the fiber is usually easily captured and stored on the frame of the device, but the softer material of oxopropanoic acid better be deformacii and contributes to a more dense clogging of the channel under pressure.

Application of the proposed solution allows to achieve the following advantages.

For many downhole operations required to carry out the isolation of one or more zones in the well or pipe. Sometimes isolation plays only a secondary role, it is necessary to facilitate the execution of other downhole operations, and then the temporary tube should be removed. That is, first isolate one section of the well, then perform the main operation, and then a temporary stopper, which provided the insulation is removed. In many cases, the creation or destruction of the locking device, the packer plug or packer requires repeated use of cable, wiring, flexible tubing, operating columns or drill pipe.

This invention shows how permanent or temporary packer-plug or packer may be created in the very well (in situ) with the use of fibrous materials. This invention shows that with proper choice of hull geometry, the required tube of fibrous materials can be created in the borehole using a standard borehole tools.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to geophysical well logging, in particular to a method of polarisation acoustic logging (PAL), and it may be used to evaluate properties of rocks. To this end electro-acoustic transducers (EAT) are used thereby for exciting and logging acoustic vibrations inside a borehole. Said vibrations are perpendicular to the borehole axis, are polarized in the planes running through the borehole axis and are propagated in the form of polarized shear waves (PSW). Moreover, the PSW are exited and logged in at least three planes running through the borehole axis. Three values of a parameter, for instance, PSW wave propagation velocity, determined in the PSW planes, are enough to build an anisotropy ellipse of this parameter. To excite PSW according to this method, monopole EAT transducers are used, having a single-directional pattern for radiation in a plane perpendicular to the instrument axis. EAT transducers that are similar to radiation sources and spaced in the PSW planes are used for logging the PSW.

FIELD: oil and gas industry, particularly devices for hermetical reservoir isolation.

SUBSTANCE: packer comprises body with central channel and connection pipe provided with shaped slot on outer surface thereof. Packer also has conical depression adjoining connection pipe, movable bush supported by connection pipe and having finger cooperating with shaped slot, as well as spring-loaded centralizer. Slips cooperating with conical depression are connected to spring-loaded centralizer ends. Packer includes upper and lower self-sealing sleeves, check valve, seating tool rigidly connected to tubing string and to body through shear members and hollow sealed rod. The hollow sealed rod comprises radial channels and telescopically slides inside central body channel. Seating tool is made as connection pipe and has rest on inner surface. Connection pipe interior communicates with ambient space. Conical depression of the body is made as upper and lower cones and connection pipe is arranged in-between. Opposite upper self-sealed sleeve and lower sleeve are located over upper cone and under lower cone correspondingly. Centralizer includes upper and lower centering members provided with differently-directed slips. Central channel of the body has restriction located in lower part thereof and receiving hollow rod so that the rod may perform limited axial movement. The rod is sealed over radial channels. Annular depressions, springing ring and sealing means are serially installed over the radial channels in bottom-top direction. Radial channels may be communicated with central channel over restriction as hollow rod slides upwards. Springing ring is adapted for adjustable hollow rod fixation as hollow rod slides downwards.

EFFECT: increased simplicity, reliability and manufacturability.

FIELD: oil and gas extractive industry.

SUBSTANCE: packer has body in form of pipe, whereon collar compactors are placed with limiting washers, saddles for locking tool dropped from surface, cover, upper and lower fixing elements, made in form of anchoring assemblies, upper conical bushing, rigidly connected to pressing bushing and movably to the body, lower conic bushing, made rigidly together with body, guide of this conic bushing made in form of plate spring, placed by one end moveably in guiding groove in lower portion of lower die with teeth, and by other end fixed rigidly on greater diameter of this conic bushing, auxiliary pipe, placed inside the body. Packer in lower portion is provided with check valve, placed inside recess of body, concurrently being also the body of valve. Oppositely to valve saddle on same axis stepped locking bushing is placed with possible sliding inside body recess with limited drive and possible overlapping of radial grooves made in body, which, in its turn, is rigidly connected to auxiliary pipe via shear pin. Between stepped locking bushing and saddle compression spring is placed. Fixing elements of collar compactors are made in form of comb with inner teeth and outer conic generators in nose portion. On the side of collar compactors these are enveloped by inner conic portion of compression bushing, in its turn rigidly connected to upper conic bushing, and on the other side combs with inner teeth are placed sliding-moveably in radial grooves of guiding bushing placed between ends of upper conic bushing and inner conic portion of compression bushing with possible engagement by inner teeth of comb to slanting walls of body groove and interaction to all elements of this assembly.

EFFECT: higher reliability.
