Method of location of lower boundary of consolidated layer of ridge and hummock based on water melt salt content in thermal electric drilling

FIELD: transportation.

SUBSTANCE: method involves the implementation of thermal electric drilling of wells in ice. Simultaneously with the drilling, melt water is sucked from the edge of the working part of the heating crown, which is fed through the hose to the ice surface to the salinity meter, and the drilling speed and salinity of the melt water are recorded on the computer or logger. In further processing of the records the drilling speed is compared with the salinity of melt water, taking into account the time of water passing from the well through the hose to the salinity meter. And the drilling speed, corresponding to the transition of a drill rod from dense ice to lose ice or void and which is the closest to the sharp increase in the salinity of water drained due to the large differences in salinity of melt ice and sea water, increases, is determined as the drill rod coming out of the consolidated layer and the depth of location of its lower boundary is recorded.

SUBSTANCE: invention proposes two versions of a method - for a bottom-hole zone and a section remote from the bottom-hole zone. In both versions, measurements of amplitudes of pulses of electromagnetic interference signals (EMI) are made. Before EMI signals are recorded, a gauging station is formed to make measurements of values of amplitudes of EMI signal pulses, for which there used is a lead ball with a fastener at the height of 1.5 m, which is fixed in its roof rock, from soil of the working, thus arranging them along the vertical axis of this plane; after that, the specified device is arranged in front of the above fastener. Values of amplitudes of EMI signal pulses are measured; maximum values are chosen - Nmax (Version 1) and N'max (Version 2), which are compared to critical value Ncr of amplitude of EMI pulses along well horizon. If Nmax>Ncr or N'max≤Ncr, then, distance of the considered section is assessed as dangerous. Scaling of low-browed roof breaks and lumps of rock is performed with a tool. Operations are performed until Nmax≤Ncr or N'max≤Ncr is obtained.

EFFECT: improving accuracy of measurements by means of a single order of selection of measurement points, fixation of the number of counts and regular orientation of the chosen device.
