In the following description numerous details for understanding the present invention. One is to qualified specialists in this field will be clear, that the present invention can be implemented in practice without these details and that many possible changes or modifications with respect to the described variants of implementation of the design.

The present invention relates in General to a system and method for increasing the durability and/or improve the functioning of the downhole tools. The system and method can be used, for example, together with a variety of equipment to complete down-hole and other manufacturing equipment. However, the devices and methods according to the present invention is not limited to their use in those specific cases, which are described here.

Figure 1 shows a downhole system 20 according to a variant implementation of the present invention. In this embodiment, the system 20 is located in an underground environment in the borehole 22. The hole 22 is drilled or otherwise formed in geological formations 24, containing, for example, desired for production fluids, such as fluids based on hydrocarbons. The bore 22 may be lined with casing pipe 26 having perforations 28 through which fluids flow between the formation 24 and the inner space of the borehole 22.

In this embodiment, downhole tools 30 is placed in the hole 22 through 32 of the deployment. Your system is 32 times the stevania can be any of a variety of systems deployment for example, the pipeline for extraction, Flex, cable, or other acceptable devices for deployment. Each of these systems deployment can move downhole tools 30 to the desired location in the well 22. Depending on the specific application types selected downhole tools 30 may be substantially altered. Often downhole tools collect in interacting with them the device and call equipment to complete.

For example, equipment for completion, is presented in figure 1, contains the packer 34, having a polymer sealing element 36. The sealing element 36 may act between the States of compression and expansion in the radial direction to provide a seal with casing pipe 26, as shown. Equipment to complete may further comprise a device 38 for flow control, such as a valve or a sliding clutch. If this equipment is used for feeding the fluid up to the mouth 40 of the borehole, the downhole tools may include a gas or electric outdoor injection system having, for example, submersible motor 44, the safety device 46 of the motor and submersible pump 48, fed by energy from a submersible motor 44. Many of these downhole tools can be powered in order to ensure the surveillance of the production fluid, for example, the valve 38 can be adjusted to control the flow or submersible pump 48 may be actuated to create fluid flow. However, it can be used in a variety of equipment to complete, including equipment for testing wells, equipment for well services and equipment for processing of wells, and used downhole tools chosen based on the type of this equipment.

In various equipment for completions, which are described above, at least some of the downhole tools are used with polymer components, such as sealing element 36. Described in more detail below, that the polymer components using modified polymers with nanoscale filler to improve the properties of the material and thus provide a significant advantage regarding durability and/or operation of downhole tools 30. In the case of the modified polymers with nannapaneni that are used, the components of the filler mainly are nanoscale, typically having a size of about several nanometers. Modified polymers with nannapaneni can provide significant performance improvements compared to the base polymer and reinforced floor the measures using conventional fillers, in which the reinforcing components considerably more, for example with a size of about microns. Polymers with nanoscale fillers demonstrate, for example, improvement in strength, elastic modulus and other properties. Thanks to get a high relative lengthening of the many material properties of modified polymers with nannapaneni significantly improved compared with the properties of conventional polymers or components of the polymers at a much lower volume fraction of the filler with respect to material, non-filler.

Figure 2 shows a variant of the modified polymeric material 50 with nannapaneni. In this embodiment, the material 50 includes a polymeric material 52 formed from polymer chains 54 and a large number of nanofillers 56 serving as agents for cross-linking. In this example, nannapaneni 56 contain nanotubes and/or nanofibres. Nanotubes can be formed in the form of multi-walled nanotubes, carbon nanotubes, single-wall or series of nanotubes. In addition, carbon nanotubes can be formed from different materials, with one example of the material used is carbon. Nanotubes from carbon exhibit highly desirable op is Tania manual thermal and electrical properties for many applications. For example, fillers, carbon nanotubes can be used to greatly increase the strength of the modified polymeric material 50 in tension, to increase the current carrying capacity of the material and to increase the capacity of a material to transfer heat. The improvement of such properties is beneficial for various components of the down-hole, and some of them are discussed in more detail below. On the other hand, nanofibres can be produced, for example, graphite, carbon, glass, cellulosic substrate and polymeric materials.

Another variant implementation of the polymeric material 50 with nannapaneni presented on figure 3. In this embodiment, the polymer material 52 has a polymer chain 54 associated nanofibers 58 containing nanoparticles or nanoglide. Nanoparticles can be produced, for example, from metals, graphite, carbon, diamond, ceramic, metal oxides, other oxides and polymeric materials. Nanoglide can be manufactured, for example, montmorillonite, bentonite, hectorite, attapulgite, kaolin, mica and illite. Some types nanoglide can be used, for example, in cases that are advantageous from the viewpoint of improving the special material properties, such as increased strength is the material 50 at the gap.

The polymer material 52 can be made of different types of simple or modified elastomeric or thermoplastic materials. Examples of elastomers include nitrile rubber, hydronically rubber, carboxyaniline rubber, silicone rubber, rubber-based copolymer of ethylene, propylene and diene polymer elastomers saturated with the main chain and containing fluorine and perforator. Examples of thermoplastic resins include polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon), polyetheretherketone, polypropylene, polyethylene and polyster.

These nanocomposites modified polymers can be used in many cases of down-hole, such as seals. Modified polymers with nanosatellites can be used, for example, as a sealing element of the packer 36, O-rings, support rings and other seal types. Nannapaneni 56, 58 can be selected to improve material properties, including improved tensile strength, compressive strength, tensile/shear, modulus, chemical resistance, heat resistance and thermal conductivity/conductivity.

Modified polymers with nannapaneni can be prepared by performing various processes. Examples of such processes include processes is rastvoreniya, the mesophase intermediate processes, the polymerization and the physical mixing or compounding. Additionally, there may be used various ways of curing, including thermal curing, curing by microwave radiation and cured by electron beam radiation. Before fabrication of polymer nanocomposites nannapaneni can also be modified to provide optimal dispersion of nanofillers. In addition, functional nannapaneni can serve as agents for cross-linking in polymer mixtures. Such technologies can be used even for thermoplastic materials with cross connections.

Figure 4 schematically presents one version of the downhole tool 30 in the form of packer 34. Packer 34 is used, for example, to separate the lower part 60 of bore hole 22 of the upper part 62. In the packer 34 used some type of sealing element 36 to form a seal between the body 64 of the packer and the wall of the borehole 22, for example, casing pipe 26 in the desired area of the seal. Advanced sealing element can also be used as an anchor. Thus, the sealing element 36 of the packer 34 may be used in a borehole as plot is to be placed, and as anchor. The downhole tool 30 may also be made in the form of bridge plugs with sealing element 36.

The sealing element 36 is an example of a component of the tool that is at least partially formed of the modified polymers with nannapaneni. The sealing element 36 may also have different configurations, for example, presents a variant has a pair of end rings 66 and a Central element 68. End rings 66 and a Central element 68 is formed of the modified polymers with nannapaneni and may contain a mixture of materials. For example, in one embodiment, the end rings 66 and a Central element 68 can be formed from the modified elastomers with nannapaneni. However, in another embodiment, the Central element 68 is formed from a modified elastomer with nannapaneni, while the end rings 66 are formed from thermoplastic materials with nannapaneni.

Figure 5 presents another variant implementation of the downhole tool 30. The downhole tool may represent, for example, a valve, such as a relief valve or a sliding clutch. In any case, the downhole tool 30 includes a housing 70 having an inner element 72, such as a slide or valve element that is moved about the context of housing 70. Between the housing 70 and the inner member 72 is formed by the seal in the form of sealing element 74, which is located in the desired area of the seals. The sealing element 74 is formed from a modified polymer with a filler to improve the properties of the material of sealing element 74 and thus to increase the durability and/or enhance the functionality of the downhole tool 30. The characteristic shape of the sealing element 74 used in this instrument 30 can vary considerably depending on such factors as performed by the instrument function, the type of tool or environment in which to operate the downhole tool. Examples of different types of seals that may be used in downhole tools are presented and described with reference to Fig.6-11.

As shown in Fig.6, the sealing element 74 is located between the first component 76 and the second component 78, which slides relative to the first component 76. Components performing relative sliding, can be components of a variety of downhole tools, including valves, sliding sleeves and pumps. In this embodiment, the design of the sealing element 74 provides a seal in the form of O-ring 80. Seals in the form of O-ring often serve as a simple but your photos is the R static seals. The sealing element 74 can also include a pair of support rings 82 located on opposite sides of the O-ring 80. The o-ring 80 and the support ring 82 may be made of modified polymers with filler. For example, the O-ring 80 may be made of modified elastomer with filler, and the support ring 82 may be made of reinforced thermoplastic material with filler.

Another example seals are presented in Fig.7. In this embodiment, the sealing element 74 includes a T-shaped seal, generally having a T-shaped Central portion 84 and a pair of reinforcing rings 86. T-ring seals are used in downhole tools that require, for example, providing a two-way dynamic sealing action between the components, making the relative reciprocating movement. Depending on the application of the T-shaped seal may be made of modified thermoplastics with nannapaneni, modified elastomers with nannapaneni or from a combination of two types of polymers.

On Fig in General presents sealing element 74 in the form of a V-shaped package stuffing or Chevron seals. Package Chevron seal includes groups of multicomponent seals, having a large number of sealing protrusions, which actuates the pressure drop. These types of seals are used in a variety of use cases down-hole, thus they are suitable for use as an internal dynamic seal. In the present embodiment, the design package contains seals group 88 and 90 of the seal formed respectively from a soft and relatively hard polymeric materials. For example, group 88 and 90 of the seal can form the package seals of alternating softer and more solid polymeric materials. In this example, group 88 seals formed from the modified elastomeric materials with nannapaneni and group 90 seals formed from modified thermoplastic materials with nannapaneni.

Additional examples of modified polymer seals with nannapaneni presented on figures 9-11. In each of these examples, the sealing element 74 contains a spring-activated seal is formed in the form of unidirectional static or dynamic seals. For example, according to Fig.9 sealing element 74 includes a body 92 of the seal with the sealing surfaces 94 and profound inner portion 96. U-shaped spring 98 is located in the deep portion 96 to provide forced flow platnium the x surfaces 94 in the outer direction.

Figure 10 shows a variant implementation of the design except that the U-shaped spring 98 is replaced by a spring 100, which in General round or oval cross-section. Like the version of the design described with reference to figure 9, the spring 100 moves the sealing surface 94 in the outer direction. Another similar design is presented figure 11. In this example, the body 92 of the seal comprises a pair of adjacent recessed inner portions 96, which contain the spring elements 102. The spring elements 102 can be formed with various configurations, including a pair of U-shaped spring elements, as shown in figure 11. In any of the options presented on Fig.9-11, use modified elastomers or thermoplastics with filler according to the constructive parameters of the downhole tool and/or the environment.

Discussed above modified polymer components with nannapaneni are some examples of components that can be used in the case of down-hole. However, such materials can also be formed by additional types of seals and other components to improve the properties of materials and the creation of downhole tools that are better able to withstand rough underground is diverse environments in which they operate. Examples of other components include soft saddle 106 used in conjunction with the downhole tool 30, as shown in Fig. Soft seat 106 can be used on such a downhole tool as valves. A typical example are the safety valves with soft seat 106 to provide an initial seal between the door 108 and the hard metal seats 110. Such soft seats can be formed from modified thermoplastic or elastomeric materials with nannapaneni.

Another example is the tool 112 with the associated seal 114 formed from the modified polymer material with nannapaneni associated with metal or composite holder 116 in the area of the connection 118. These related seals use a variety of tools 112, including an auxiliary piston, a reciprocating clutch, power pistons and other components. In addition, of the modified polymers with nannapaneni can also be formed components that are not sealing downhole tool.
