The technical field to which the invention relates.

The present invention relates to research in-depth sampling of fluids and, in particular, to obtain aliquot deep microprobe fluids for carrying out rapid on-site analysis of the sample to determine the quality of the deep samples.

The level of technology

Reservoir fluids in oil and gas wells are typically a mixture of oil, gas and water. Phase mixing ratio is determined by pressure, temperature and volume of reservoir fluids. In underground rocks high pressure well fluid often causes the absorption of gas oil with the formation of supersaturated solutions. With decreasing pressure absorbed or dissolved gaseous compounds are distinguished from the liquid phase of the sample. Accurate measurements of pressure, temperature and composition of the formation fluid from a particular well affect the assessment of the economic feasibility of producing fluids from a well. These data also provide information on ways to maximize the effectiveness of the completion and development of the corresponding reservoir hydrocarbons.

The number of known methods of analysis of well fluids in the well environment. In the patent US 6467544 (Brown and others) described the sampling chamber with a movable piston bounding a cavity, in which the Oh is the sample on one side of the piston and the buffer cavity. In the patent US 5361839 (Griffith and others, 1993) revealed the transmitter to signal characterizing the properties of the sample fluid in the well environment. In the patent US 5329811 (Schultz and others, 1994) described a device and method of assessment data for pressure and volume for the deep sample of the downhole fluid.

Other methods include sampling well fluid to release it to the surface. In the patent US 4583595 (Czenichow and others, 1986) the mechanism of reciprocating drive for assaying downhole fluid. In the patent US 4721157 (Berzin, 1988) described the sliding valve sleeve to be concluded in the camera sample of the downhole fluid. In the patent US 4766955 (Petermann, 1988) described the piston that interacts with a valve for sampling well fluid, and in the patent US 4903765 (Zunkel, 1990) - downhole sampler with time delay. In the patent US 5009100 (Gruber and others, 1991) described the descent on the cable sampler for sampling well fluid from the well to the desired depth. In the patent US 5240072 (Schultz and others, 1993) describes triggered on annular pressure sampler multiple steps for selection of the deep samples of well fluids at different points in time and at different depths, and in the patent US 5322120 (Be and others, 1994) disclosed an electro-hydraulic system for sampling well fluid from STV is as well at great depths.

In deep wells the temperature often exceed 300°F. When removing hot samples of formation fluids to the surface, where the temperature is about 70°F, due to the temperature drop of the sample formation fluid tends to shrink in size. If the volume of the sample remains constant, this reduction leads to a significant decrease of the pressure of the sample. The pressure drop leads to changes of the parameters inherent in Plast fluid in natural (in situ) groundwater, which can cause phase separation of liquids and gases absorbed break of the formation fluid. Phase separation entails a significant change in the characteristics of the formation fluid and reduces the real possibility of assessment of real properties of the formation fluid.

To overcome this drawback, various techniques have been developed aimed at maintaining samples of formation fluids under pressure. In the patent US 5337822 (Massie and others, 1994) the pressure in the sample formation fluid is supported by a piston with a hydraulic actuator driven by compressed high-pressure gas. Similarly, in patent US 5662166 (Shammai, 1997) to compress the sample formation fluid is gas under pressure. In patents US 5303775 (1994) and US 5377755 (Michaels and others, 1995) revealed piston pump double acting to increase the pressure in the sample reservoir fluid is to the value exceeding the saturation pressure, so that the subsequent cooling does not lead to reduction of pressure of fluid below the saturation pressure.

Usually the containers are in their samples (selected capacity) is transported in the laboratory, where they analyze the samples to determine properties of the formation fluid. Samples normally have to move in a shipping container that is associated with the risk of damage to the sample due to the pressure drop accompanied by the formation of bubbles or loss in a sample of asphaltenes. Moreover, even if the sample is successfully delivered to the laboratory, usually on the results of its full laboratory analysis takes weeks and even months. There is therefore a need in the accelerated system analysis (proximate analysis) of the samples, which would give accurate results, eliminating the risk of damage to the sample.

Summary of the invention

The present invention is directed to overcoming the above described disadvantages of the prior art. In accordance with the present invention it is proposed to use sampling tank, or container, for sampling from wells, as well as several micropropagating cameras (under macroprolactinemia cameras understood miniaturization sampling chamber for microprobe). Microprojectile camera can have at least one the cat to enter energy visible radiation, radiation in the near and middle regions of the infrared (IR) range and energy of other types of electromagnetic radiation in a container for samples collected in micropropagating the camera in a well or pit. This window may be made of sapphire or other material capable of transmitting electromagnetic radiation. In addition, microprolactinoma camera can be entirely made of sapphire or other material capable of transmitting electromagnetic radiation with the possibility of visual inspection or analysis of the sample inside microprolactinomas camera. Microprolactinoma camera allows the surface to immediately investigate the extracted sample on the site of the well to determine the quality of the samples, which were mainly of the sampling reservoir, or to subject the sample to a comprehensive study.

The sample reservoir and microprojectile camera fill, pumping them in wireline fluid, with a piston loaded by hydrostatic pressure, creating a back pressure. In the sample reservoir and micropropagating cameras create excessive pressure using a pressure source, such as a pump or a charge of compressed gas to raise the pressure in the sample to a level above the saturation pressure, in order to avoid undesirable pressure drop. Microprojectile to what measures can be extracted on the surface for immediate research holistic samples inside microprolactinomas camera, by means of optical analysis or fasten micropropagating the camera on the test bench and to pump the sample from microprolactinomas camera test bench for analysis by the method of gas chromatography. To the pressure in microprobe guaranteed to exceed the saturation pressure, you can use a pressure source for loading samples in microprolactinomas chamber pressure of water. The viscosity of the sample inside microprolactinoma tank can be determined by weighing the empty microprolactinoma tank and re-weighing, when he filled a break, allowing you to determine the weight of the sample inside microprolactinomas chamber of known volume.

Description of the preferred variant of the invention

Figure 1 is a schematic geological cross-section thickness of 10 breeds in length were drilled in her hole 11. Typically, the well is at least partially filled with a mixture of liquids, including water, drilling mud and formation fluids flowing into the well from open borehole rocks. In this description such mixtures are referred to by the term "downhole fluids". The notion of "wireline fluid" is used below in respect of fluid from a particular layer not containing impurities and not contaminated liquids, which in this layer in a natural way not found.

In the well 11 is lowered, the sampler 20 is suspended on the lower end of the cable 12. The cable 12 is typically passed through a pulley 13 mounted on the drill rig 14. Descent and ascent cable is produced using the winch, installed, for example, on a truck with 15 equipment for maintenance.

Figure 2 schematically shows an embodiment of the proposed invention in the sampler 20. In this embodiment, the workbench sampler represent a layout with several located in a number of sections, which are connected to the ends of the threaded bushings 23 compression couplings. The composition of such a composition may include a hydraulic power unit 21 unit 22 selection of the fluid. Lower unit 22 selection of the fluid is pumping unit 24 volume type with a large working volume, intended for flushing hydraulic lines. Below the pump with a large displacement is similar to the pump unit 25 volume type with a smaller displacement of which is controlled in quantitative terms, as explained more with reference to figure 3. Usually under the pump a smaller volume are arranged one or several sections 26 of tank storage for the samples of fluid. Each section 26 may include three or more reservoir storage for 30 samples of fluid.

Unit 22 sampling fluid contains retractable receiving the probe 27 and on the opposite side from his hand - paws 28 to rest on the borehole wall. As the receiving probe 27 and the opposite with the pile of legs 28 are nominated by the hydraulic drive, coming into tight contact with the borehole wall. Design and principle of operation of the unit 22 for selecting the fluid described in detail in US patent 5303775, the contents of which are included in this description.

As shown in figure 4, the main sampling chamber 414 communicates with microprolactinomas chamber 510 through the hydraulic line 410. Wireline fluid is fed into the input channel 412 of the pump 25. The plunger 416 on the one hand and hydrostatic pressure applied through the opening 420 extending into the well. Accordingly, a sample of formation fluid pumped into the main sample chamber and microprojectile camera 510, overcoming summed up from the well hydrostatic pressure. Increasing the amount of fluid injected into the sample chamber 414, the volume of the sampling chamber 414, the volume of micropropagating cameras 510 increases. Luggage 418 charged with nitrogen, the pressure of which will impinge on the opposite side of the piston 416, as soon as the piston is moving down, will rest against the connecting rod 449. The charge of gaseous nitrogen pressurizes the sample contained in the sampling chamber 414 and micropropagating chambers 510.

In the chamber 422 is fed to the hydrostatic pressure acting on the bottom of the piston 416, resulting in the injection process, the sample fluid into the core sample chamber and acropomatidae chamber the pressure of the sample exceeds the hydrostatic pressure. The modules 400 host microprobe (hereinafter microrobotic) accommodated in the housing 440, from which it can be retrieved for inspection and analysis of sample inside microprolactinomas camera 510.

Figure 5 in more detail, the present design microprolactinoma 400. The opening of the valve or valve 516 connects the main sampling chamber 414 and microprojectile camera 510. Microprojectile camera 510 is equipped with podavlyayushee pistons 441, which operates downhole hydrostatic pressure applied through the opening 522. Thus, wireline fluid is pumped into the sample hydraulic line 410 in terms of back pressure side loaded hydrostatic pressure piston 441 in micropropagating chambers 510 and piston 416 in the main sample chamber 414.

Microrobotic 400 before descending into the well weighed in empty condition and re-weighed when full breakdown of the fluid to determine the sample weight. Knowing the amount of microprolactinomas camera 510 can determine the density of the sample fluid inside microprolactinomas camera 510, by dividing the weight (mass) to volume. The density of the sample fluid can determine its viscosity.

From the hydraulic line 410 wireline fluid enters micropaleontology chamber 510 through the check valve 520. Return the first valve 520 allows Plast fluid to pass into the sample chamber, but hinders its exit therefrom, unless the check valve is not open rod 612, shown in Fig.6.

Valve 516 is closed after the sample will fill microprojectile camera 510 and the main sampling chamber 414 and the corresponding pistons and 416 441 drops to a stop, causing the volume of the sample chambers will be maximum. After closing the valve 516 is opened drain line 512 to release any pressure in the hydraulic line 410 between the valve 516 and the check valve 520. After grazing pressure microrobotic 400 can be retrieved, viventis threaded connection 532 of the housing 518 device that allows you to expose the sample contained in microprolactinomas chamber 510 inside microprolactinoma 400 visual inspection and analysis.

Microrobotic 400 may be made of metal with Windows made of a material such as sapphire, which enables visual inspection and optical analysis of the content microprolactinomas camera. In addition, microrobotic 400 or wall 401 of its body, surrounding micropaleontology camera 510 may be entirely made of a material such as sapphire, which enables visual inspection and optical analysis of the content microprolactinomas camera.

As the show is but 6, to the hole 522 is possible to connect the water pump to supply pressure to the underside of the piston 441 microprolactinoma to create excess pressure acting on the sample in micropropagating the camera 510, during migration microsamples in a test device, such as a gas chromatograph 600. Microrobotic screwed into the test stand 600, in this case the rod 612 opens the check valve 520, allowing the sample inside the chamber 510, go into the test stand 600. The water pressure created by the pump 610, holds the sample under pressure, preventing evaporation of the sample in microprolactinomas chamber 510 during migration on the test stand.

In the present embodiment, microprolactinomas camera has one or more optical fibers, which in this embodiment are designed for high pressure sapphire Windows 530, which transmits electromagnetic radiation in micropropagating camera 510 and producing it from there with the optical analysis of the sample of formation fluid to determine the parameters of interest of the fluid. Microprolactinoma camera can be entirely made of sapphire or other material capable of transmitting electromagnetic radiation, which allows you to inspect the contents microprolactinomas camera and hold it non-destructive range of the local analysis or the analysis of a different type. You can use the Windows are made not only of transparent corundum, but also of other materials.

When working on the surface, as shown in Fig.6, microrobotic extracted from the body of the sampler. For non-destructive analysis on the surface of the external optical analyzer 620 containing the source of radiation in the near and/or middle region of the IR range, the ultraviolet range or the source of visible light, and spectrometers. The optical analyzer 620 contains a source of radiation in the near and/or middle region of the IR range, and the corresponding photodetector for analyzing transmission, fluorescence and frustrated total internal reflection (Attenuated Total Reflectance) of light. Thus excluded as the intervention in a sample fluid, and the need to transfer samples into another chamber, certified by the Ministry of transport for delivery to the analytical laboratory, located at a distance from the place of receipt of the sample.

In this embodiment, an external optical analyzer 620 scans the sample fluid by radiation in the wavelength range from 1500 to 2000 nm for the determination or estimation using software modeling techniques, such desired parameters, as the percentage of impurities, gas factor, density and pressure drop of asphaltenes. For the spectral the analysis of the sample fluid analysis module 620 is also provided with a tunable diode laser and a Raman spectrometer (Raman) scattering. All light sources and sensors are placed inside microprolactinomas camera 510 or related to the internal volume microprolactinomas camera through the optical vent window 530 or equivalent fiber, ensuring the passage of signals or electromagnetic radiation inside the sample container and the contained sample and exit back out.

Some of the many advantages of the present invention are revealed when comparing Fig.7, reflecting the level of technology, and Fig, which illustrates a new way and constructive solution of the underlying promising optical analyzer, which is implemented in the present invention. As shown in Fig that the results of calculations of basic parameters, carried out by optical studies (block 1114), can be obtained immediately or in less than six hours, and the final report of PVT studies (block 1132) - less than a week and not six to eight weeks, as it is shown in Fig.7. for the prior art. The advantage of the above method and device is no need to transfer samples from one container to another, because the research of parameters of pressure, volume, temperature (PVT properties and spectral analysis to determine the conditions of precipitation of asphaltenes, the saturation point, volumetric coefficient is ecient fluid in reservoir conditions and component composition, as well as others discussed above types of research are ground or underlying equipment non-destructive analysis in the external equipment or apparatus 620.
