Description

井下工具 Downhole tools

技术领域 FIELD

[0001] 本发明涉及井下工具(downhole tool),特别是涉及用于诸如油井、水井和天然气井之类的钻井工具。 [0001] The present invention relates to downhole tools (downhole tool), particularly relates to a well tool, such as oil wells, water wells and natural gas wells and the like.

背景技术 Background technique

[0002] 在地下钻井的结构和处理方面,有许多用于运输和钻井工具操作的基本技术。 [0002] In the drilling of underground structures and process aspects, there are a number of basic transport technology and tools for drilling operations. 例如,在钻探时,钻头固定在由一系列首尾相接的空钻管形成的钻杆柱的下端。 For example, while drilling, the drill bit fixed at the lower end of the drill string by a series of end to end contact with air formed by the drill pipe. 通过在地面旋转钻杆柱,或者通过使用打孔电机,使钻头旋转,并且这种旋转和施加到钻头上的重压让钻探得以进行。 By rotating the drill string at the ground, or by using a punch motor, the drill bit rotation, and this rotation and weight on the bit is applied to allow drilling to proceed. 为了清除钻出的物质并帮助在钻探过程中将钻探泥浆(一般已知为“泥浆”) 向下泵送到钻杆柱内部,以退出钻头并将围绕钻杆柱外面的环面(armulus)钻出的物质(“钻屑”)运送回地面。 To remove the drilled material and assist in the drilling process drilling muds (commonly known as "mud") pumped down the inner string, to exit the drill bit around the outside of the drill string and the annulus (armulus) drilled material ( "cuttings") transported back to the ground. 钻探泥浆也提供对钻井的支撑,并平衡地岩层的液压,由于液柱产生的流体静压力。 The drilling mud also provides support for the drilling, formation and hydraulic balance, since the hydrostatic pressure of the fluid column. 在这种技术的发展中,电机,一般以Moyno (容积式)装置的形式安装在钻头上面的钻杆柱中。 In the development of this technology, the motor, typically in the form of Moyno (positive displacement) device is installed in the drill string above the drill bit. 电机被泥浆流驱动并能够用于独立于钻杆柱的旋转来转动钻头。 Mud flow driven by the motor and can be used independently of the rotation of the drill string to rotate the drill bit. 这种技术,结合弯曲打孔组件(“弯曲潜进器”)和方向传感器使钻探的方向被控制。 This technique, combined bending punch assembly ( "bend latent feeder"), a direction sensor and the drilling direction is controlled. 对于直线钻探,使用旋转钻杆柱(“旋转钻探”)与用电机旋转钻头的技术。 For straight drilling using a rotary drill string ( "rotary drilling") and the motor rotary drill bit technology. 为了改变方向,停止旋转钻探,通过从地面旋转钻杆柱并使用打孔电机旋转钻头重新开始钻探,和通过钻杆柱(“滑动模式钻探”)从地面施加重压给钻头,弯曲潜进器定向成钻头正面点朝向打算的方向。 To change direction, rotary drilling is stopped, by rotating the drill string from the ground and the punch motor using the rotary drill bit drilling resumed, and through the drill column ( "sliding drilling mode"), the weight applied to the drill bit from the ground, the latent curved feeder oriented to point toward the front of the drill bit intended. 当打孔获得期望的方向,重新开始旋转钻探。 When punctured to obtain the desired direction, rotary drilling is resumed.

[0003] 测量装置也可以设置在钻杆柱的下部(“底孔部件”或“BHA”)。 [0003] measuring means may be provided at a lower portion of the drill string ( "bottomed member" or "BHA"). 当BHA从孔中撤回时,这些装置,例如,钻探测量(“MWD”)装置用于有关钻探工艺的测量:钻头的重量,R0P、 方向和倾斜、或钻探测井(“LWD”)装置用于涉及地岩层的测量:抵抗力、核测量、声学测量, 经过移动存储装置,经过在钻杆柱中布置的电缆,可以将数据提供给地面,或通过泥浆脉冲遥感勘测,其是在地面通过位于BHA中的警报器检测在钻探泥浆时产生的压力脉冲。 When the BHA is withdrawn from the hole, these means, for example, measuring drilling ( "MWD") means for measuring the drilling process is related to: the weight of the drill bit, R0P, direction and inclination device, logging or drilling ( "LWD") relates to the measurement of a formation: resistivity, nuclear measurements, acoustic measurements, after the mobile storage device, disposed in the cable through the drill string, can provide data to the ground, or by mud-pulse telemetry which is ground by located in the BHA alarm detects pressure pulses generated when drilling mud.

[0004] 涉及使用钻杆柱的任何活动需要在地面存在钻探平台。 [0004] any activity involving the use of the drill string requires the presence of a drilling platform on the ground. 而且,将钻杆柱放入井核将钻杆柱拉出井花费的时间相当长,尤其是非常深的井。 Furthermore, the drill string into the well drill string is pulled out of the nuclear well spent quite a long time, especially in very deep wells.

[0005] 一旦孔已经钻探,测量装置可以用在井下工具和地面之间提供动力和数据通信的缆线(“导线”、“电线”、“光滑线”)降到孔中。 [0005] once the hole has been drilled, the measuring device may be used between the downhole tool and the surface to provide a wire ( "wire", "wire", "smooth line") down hole power and data communication. 这种操作不需要使用钻井平台并可以相当快地进行。 This operation does not require drilling platform and can be relatively quickly. 但是,到目前为止,考虑到提供动力、转矩和重压到打孔钻头有困难,它只能在小范围使用导线进行钻探操作。 However, to date, taking into account to provide power, torque and weight to the drill hole is difficult, it can only use wires drilling operation in a small area. 取岩芯是通过导线系统来进行的钻探活动的一个实例。 It is one example of coring drilling activity performed by wire system. 取岩芯是使用柱形钻头从孔周围的岩石提取实芯材料,其返回到地面用于分析。 Coring drill bit is used to extract a solid cylindrical core material around the hole from the rock, returning to the surface for analysis. 导线取岩芯单元的一个实例如US4,354,558所示。 Wire coring unit as one example shown in US4,354,558. 已经提出用于从主孔的侧面钻探相当小的孔的另一种导线装置。 Another wire has been proposed for drilling relatively small holes device from the side of the main bore. 所有这些装置仅提供相当短的排水孔并且所有装置都存在提供转矩和重压给钻头的问题,特别是在钻探到岩石之前需要钻通钻井的金属套管。 All of these devices provide only relatively short drain holes and all devices are present to provide torque to the drill bit and the weight problems, especially in drilled into the rock before drilling requires drilling through metal sleeve. 如US6,167,968所示的一种方法涉及将使用短硬铣刀部件钻或铣通套管的动作与使用弹性钻具部件钻进岩石的动作分开。 As shown in US6,167,968 relates to a method using a short stiff drilling or milling cutter member through the sleeve and the elastic operation of the rock drill drilling operation member separately. 在另一种技术中,弹性钻轴用一系列圆盘包围,这样既提供支撑又让压力施加给钻头。 In another technique, the elastic quill surrounded by a series of disks, so as to provide support letting the pressure applied to the drill bit. 这种技术如US6,276,453所示。 This technique as shown in US6,276,453. 另一种分别提供牵引力和转矩的方法如US5,687,806所示。 Another traction and torque are provided a method as shown in US5,687,806.

[0006] 在钻探水平井孔时的另一个问题是重力。 [0006] Another problem when drilling a horizontal borehole gravity. 在垂直或不是非常偏的半垂直井孔中, 导入井孔的导线、缆线、盘绕管、管状绳索和工具由于重力下降到井孔。 Not very biased in a vertical or semi-vertical wellbore, the wellbore introduction wire, cable, coiled tubing, rope and the tubular tool lowered into the wellbore by gravity. 当缆线到达偏离垂直70°时,重力不再提供所需的力和由此引起的张力将工具移到井孔。 When the cable reaches from the vertical 70 °, gravity no longer provides the necessary force and resulting tension to move the tool in the wellbore. 例如,在美国专利4,463,814中,有些现有技术的方法公开了用锚定装置的牵引器。 For example, in U.S. Patent No. 4,463,814, some of the prior art methods discloses the use of the anchoring device of the tractor.

[0007] EP1M7936描述了一种导线工具,其可以到钻管内部并用于经由在底孔组件中的侧出口芯轴而在钻杆柱的外部钻探来获得岩芯。 [0007] EP1M7936 wire describes a tool which can be used to drill pipe inside and outside the drill string and drilling through the outlet side of the mandrel assembly of bottom core obtained. 在这种装置中,封隔器(packer)膨胀在钻管内,电子活塞潜进器(sub)位于封隔器上面,钻探电机和芯钻头位于封隔器下面。 In this device, a packer (Packer) is expanded in the drill pipe, submersible electronic piston feeder (Sub) located above the packer, drilling motor and core bit is located below the packer. 活塞通过在封隔器中的滑动密封提供重压给钻头驱动,转矩的提供是通过浆泥浆流从钻杆柱内部转移到封隔器下面的钻探电机。 The piston sliding seal provided by the weight of the packer in the drive to the drill bit, torque is transferred from the provided inside the drill string below the packer slurry mud flow through the drilling motor. 钻探泥浆和钻屑以正常方式经由中心孔侧面的环面和主孔的环面返回到地面。 Drill cuttings and drilling mud return in the normal manner via the annulus and annulus sides of the main bore of the central bore to the surface. 这个装置中的封隔器起到反作用点的作用,用于在钻探过程中施加转矩和给钻头的重压。 The packer apparatus counterproductive effect point, and for applying torque to the weight of the drill bit during drilling. 它还使钻探泥浆流过电机。 It also allows drilling mud to flow through the motor. 但是,因为它需要通过封隔器提供滑动密封,该设计限制了它提供延伸钻探深度的能力。 However, since it is necessary to provide a sliding seal through the packer, the design limits on its capacity to extend the drilling depth. 而且,它必须从地面供应钻探泥浆和返回钻探泥浆和钻屑的环面。 Moreover, it must be supplied drilling mud and drilling mud return annulus and drill cuttings from the ground.

[0008] 这种钻探工具的一种具体使用是钻探的再进入,其中为了提高生产、纠正等,进一步的钻探操作在退出井使进行。 [0008] One particular use of such drilling tools is reentry drilling, wherein in order to improve production, correction, etc., so that further drilling operations in the exit well. 这种技术的评论可以在Hill DNerne E,Ehlig-Economides C,和Mollinedo M的“重新进入钻探给予衰变区域新的生命(Reentry Drilling Gives New Life to Aging Fields) ”,油田周刊(Oilfield Review) (1996 年8 月)4-14 中找到。 This review technology can "re-enter the drilling area to give new life to decay (Reentry Drilling Gives New Life to Aging Fields)", oilfield Weekly (Oilfield Review) in Hill DNerne E, Ehlig-Economides C, and Mollinedo M's (1996 August) 4-14 found. 描述的一种特殊工具是VIPER盘绕管钻探系统(Coiled Tubing Drilling System),其包括具有用于电缆线的连接器的钻头模块,包括许多传感器和有关电子器件的锚定工具,包括电机和动力设备的定向工具,和具有可操纵电机的钻探单元。 A special tool is described VIPER coiled tubing drilling system (Coiled Tubing Drilling System), which comprises a drill bit having a module connector for a cable, comprising anchoring means related to many sensors and electronic devices, including motors and power equipment the orientation tool, and the drilling unit with a steerable motor. 尽管系统经由缆线提供动力和数据,它还需要提供盘绕管来沿着井推动工具。 Although the system provides power and data via a cable, it also needs to provide a coiled tube to push the tool along the well.

[0037] 反冲板42位于钻头下面,但通过支撑件43直接连接到驱动单元10的上部。 [0037] recoil plate 42 is located beneath the drill bit, but is connected to an upper portion of the drive unit 10 via a support member 43 directly. 反冲板42包括板或相对钻井轴成角度的其它平面,并用于沿特定方向相对钻井推动钻头。 Recoil plate 42 includes a plate or other planar drill axis relative to an angle, relative to the drilling and pushing the drill bit in a particular direction. 在操作中,反冲板以与造斜器相似的方式起作用,如下面所述。 In operation, the recoil plate whipstock function in a similar manner, as described below. 支撑件43通过可锁定滑动连接44连接驱动单元。 The support member 43 slidably connected to the drive unit 44 via a locking connection. 旋转节(swiver) 46设置在沿支撑件43的中路(part way),以让反冲板42通过操作定向潜进器20在钻井中定向。 Swivel (swiver) 46 is provided in the middle (part way) along the support member 43, plate 42 is oriented to allow the recoil latent feeder 20 by operating the directional drilling. 反冲板42的功能在下面详细描述。 Backlash function plate 42 is described in detail below.

[0038] 在使用时,工具利用电缆线下降到井中,直到到达期望的深度。 [0038] In use, the tool lowered into the well using the cable, until reaching the desired depth. 在该位置驱动单元10通过操作上锁定部件12锁定并驱动电泵送单元沈。 Locking the position of the drive unit 10 by operating the locking member 12 and feed pump drive unit sink. 流体(“泥浆”)从主井14泵送到小钻管36中。 Fluid ( "mud") from the pump 14 to the main shaft 36 in a small drill pipe. 泥浆流进钻管36中并到达使钻头40旋转的电机38。 Mud flow into the drill pipe 36 and reaches the motor 40 rotates the drill bit 38.

[0039] 在开始钻探之前,定向潜进器20确保钻探电机38的弯曲,反冲板42面向正确方向(经常称为“工具面”)。 [0039] Before starting drilling, the orientation of a latent feeder 20 to ensure the bending of the drilling motor 38, the recoil plate 42 facing the right direction (often referred to as a "tool face"). 轴向位移和钻头重压(“W0B”)通过驱动单元10来传输。 Axial displacement of the drill bit and weight ( "W0B") transmitted by the drive unit 10.

[0040] 这种组合技术让钻头40推进到地岩层,并且由于弯曲钻探电机38而钻探弯曲孔。 [0040] This combination technique allows the drill bit 40 to advance into the formation, the drilling motor 38 and the bending and drilling curved holes. 选择弯曲角度,使得侧孔50在其长度(一般大约为100英尺)上转90度,如图3a和北所示。 Selected bend angle, such that the side hole 50 (typically about 100 feet) on a 90 degree rotation in its length, as shown in Figures 3a and north. 在侧孔50中泥浆循环经由小钻杆柱和钻头由主孔14中的泵送单元沈来提供。 The side hole 50 in the mud circulating through the drill string and drill bit smaller by a pumping unit provided in the main bore 14 of Shen. 在侧孔50中的钻屑通过泥浆运送和送进主孔14中并存放在钻屑收集装置中,如下面参照图4 的描述。 Drill cuttings in the mud side of the hole 50 by the main conveyance and feed holes 14 exist in cuttings collection device, as described below with reference to FIG. 4.

[0041] 当一个侧孔50的钻探完成时,如果钻屑收集袋不满,导线电钻探系统可以移到另一个深度并开始钻探另一个侧孔。 [0041] When drilling a lateral hole 50 is completed, if dissatisfaction cuttings collection bag, electrical wires drilling system can be moved to another depth and another lateral hole drilling starts.

[0042] 反冲板42是与主孔14的轴设成角度的导向板。 [0042] recoil plate and the shaft 42 is a main bore 14 of the angled guide plate is provided. 该板42起造斜器的作用,以在钻头40上产生侧力并将钻头推进地岩层。 The role of plate 42 from the whipstock to generate side force on the drill bit 40 and advancing to the formation. 这种反冲板42 —般通过滑动连接44连接到驱动单元10。 This recoil plate 42 - as connector 44 is connected to the driving unit 10 by the slide. 反冲板42可以保持在钻井14的固定位置,或当启动反冲板钻探时,固定在距驱动单元10的静止部分一定距离。 Recoil plate 42 may be held in a fixed position of the drill 14, or when starting the drilling recoil plate, the stationary part of the drive unit 10 is fixed to a certain distance from the. 在驱动单元10的第一推动位移过程中,在驱动单元10的上部被锁定在钻井中之后,钻头40被推进与反冲板42接触。 In the process of the first push displacement of the drive unit 10, after the upper portion of the drive unit 10 is locked in the drilling, the drill bit 40 is urged into contact with the recoil plate 42. 一旦钻头40开始穿透钻井壁以形成侧孔50时,当驱动单元10重新位于钻井14中时反冲板42可以远离进入点。 Once the drill bit 50 begins to penetrate the borehole wall 40 to form a side hole, the drive unit 10 when re-positioned drilling 14 in the recoil plate 42 may be remote from the entry point.

[0043] 在一替换中,反冲板用两个平行于钻杆柱的支撑管保持。 [0043] In an alternative, the recoil plate in the drill string holding two parallel support tube. 这些管滑进驱动单元10 的连接44并使用旋转节,如上所述。 These tubes slide into the connection 44 of the drive unit 10 and use the swivel, as described above. 用于支撑管的连接被安装到驱动单元的中部或上部。 A middle or upper connecting the support tube is mounted to the drive unit. 支撑管在连接中的滑动可以通过连接中的锁定系统来控制,如下: A sliding support tube in the connection can be controlled by a locking connection system as follows:

[0044] a)在新侧孔的钻探开始时,驱动单元缩短,以使上部和下部在一起,然后在孔中锁定其上部,同时释放其下部。 [0044] a) while drilling a new hole is started side, shortening the drive unit, so that the upper and lower parts together, and then locks its upper part in the hole, while releasing its lower part.

[0045] b)用于反冲板支撑管的锁定系统锁定。 [0045] b) a locking tube plate supporting recoil locking system. 这样相对驱动单元的上部固定该管。 Such a drive unit relative to the upper portion of the tube is fixed.

[0046] c)然后,驱动单元开始延伸。 [0046] c) Then, the drive unit extends. 这样将底部件(包括钻杆柱)朝底部推。 Thus the base member (including a drill string) pushed towards the bottom. 钻头撞击反冲板并且产生轴向位移,强迫钻头进入地岩层。 Impact drill recoil plate and axial displacement, forcing the bit into the earth formation.

[0047] d)当钻头充分地进入侧地岩层时,可以释放用于支撑管的锁定系统。 [0047] d) when the drill bit into the side of a formation sufficiently, the locking system can be used to release the support tube. 在有些情况下,它需要一些选择,以在完成侧孔的钻探操作的过程中将反冲板保持在相对于钻井的初始位置,而不是相对于驱动单元。 In some cases, it takes some options to complete the recoil in the side of the hole during a drilling operation plate held in an initial position relative to the wellbore, rather than relative to the drive unit.

[0048] 本发明的另一实施例如图4所示,其保证围绕反冲板42的井部被液压隔离。 [0048] Another embodiment of the present invention is shown in FIG. 4, which ensures the well around the recoil plate 42 is hydraulically isolated. 这种隔离通过两个橡胶帽52、54 (用两个封隔器替换)来实现,其密封钻井14的上和下钻探部分。 This isolation is achieved by two rubber caps 52, 54 (replaced by two packers) that seal the upper and lower drilling drilling portion 14. 这种隔离强迫在钻探过程中流出侧孔50的泥浆强制进入安装在下帽M上的钻屑收集袋56中。 This isolation forced outflow side mud hole 50 during drilling cuttings forced into the mounting M on the lower cap collection bag 56. 当在井孔中移动工具时,橡胶帽或封隔器收缩或缩小。 When moving the tool in the wellbore, the rubber cap or packer or reduced shrinkage.

[0049] 钻屑袋56包括安装在或靠近反冲板42的大袋。 [0049] Sack cuttings bag 56 includes a mounting plate 42 at near or recoil. 该袋收集在钻探过程中由侧孔50 出来的泥浆带出的钻屑。 The bag was collected during drilling out of the side hole 50 by the mud out of the drill cuttings. 在优选装置中,袋56伸到反冲板42下面,如图4所示。 In the preferred arrangement, the bag 56 beneath the recoil plate out into the 42, as shown in FIG. 填充机构让钻屑正确地循环(用泥浆流回,以保证正确的填充),例如,安装在下帽M上的“风箱”型袋。 Filling mechanism allows proper circulation of the cuttings (with mud flow back, to ensure proper filling), for example, on the lower mounting cap M is "bellows" -type bags. 循环管58安装到帽52和M之间。 Circulation pipe 58 is mounted between the cap 52 and M. 袋56是能渗透的,使得在泥浆通过的同时保留钻屑,通过的泥浆返回到管58中并进入泵送单元沈附近的钻井14。 Permeable bag 56 is so retained while the drill cuttings through the mud through mud return to the drilling tube 58 and into the vicinity of the pumping unit sink 14. 可替换的装置包括代替袋的收集钻屑的渗透管,或挡板装置,所述挡板将钻屑导向工具下面的钻井14,如果能够重新进入钻井下部不是必要的。 Alternatively the device may include collecting cuttings permeate tube, bag, or in place of the shutter device, the shutter guide drill cuttings below the drilling tool 14, if able to re-enter the lower part of the drilling is not necessary.

[0050] 在泵送单元沈和电机38之间的钻探管36在压缩的状态下,将轴向力从驱动单元10传输到钻头40,并保证钻头的重压(WOB)。 [0050] In the drill pipe 38 between the sink and the pumping unit motor 36 in the compressed state, the axial force transmitted from the driving unit 10 to the drill bit 40, and to ensure that the weight of the drill bit (WOB). 管的直径一般很小(可能在1-1. 75”之间), 管长度大约是150英尺。在有些钻探应用中需要高达3吨的W0B。这种轴向负载在钻探管中可以产生失稳影响(bucklingeffect)。在大直径的钻井中,钻探管可能产生大变形,这会有害于钻探管的结构和钻探过程。为了避免钻探管36在大孔部分的失稳,管导向器60可以沿管36安装在不同距离。这些导向器可以包括尺寸近似主孔直径的十字形部件。管36 在导向器60中滑动。导向器60用弹性连接器62相互连接,从而限制最大间隔。连接器62 的上端连接驱动单元10,下端连接反冲板42。 Generally small diameter of the tube (possibly 1-1. 75 "between), the tube length is about 150 feet. In some drilling applications requiring up to three tons W0b. Such axial load may be generated in the loss of the drill pipe Effect stability (bucklingeffect). drilling large diameter, a large drill pipe may deform, which will be detrimental to the drill pipe structure and drilling process in order to avoid buckling the drill pipe 36 in the large hole portion, a tube guide 60 may the tube 36 is mounted at different distances. these cross-shaped guide member may include a main bore size approximately the diameter of the tube 36 to slide in the guide 60 the guide 60 is connected to each other with an elastic connector 62, so as to limit the maximum interval. connector 62 is connected to the upper end of the drive unit 10, the lower end plate 42 connected to recoil.

[0051] 通过驱动单元10产生W0B,其优选以恒力操作,而不是恒速。 [0051] W0B generated by the driving unit 10, which preferably operate at constant force rather than constant speed. 当钻探电机38停止时(可以通过实时泵压监控来检测),控制它迅速减小W0B。 When the motor 38 is stopped while drilling (may be detected by real-time pump pressure monitoring), the control that decreases rapidly W0B.

[0052] 小测井测量)潜进器64可以安装在钻探管36和电机38之间,如图5所示。 [0052] Small logging measurements) latent feeder 64 may be mounted between the motor 38 and drill pipe 36, as shown in FIG. 当具有用于内部泥浆流的大约1”的内部孔时,这个潜进器64—般具有大约2^V'的0D。这个潜进器至少包含支撑测量的最小部件,并连接在驱动单元10下面的控制潜进器22。通信可以基于导线或无线遥感勘测。该控制潜进器22控制所述测量潜进器64,并通过电缆线将数据传输到地面。 When an internal bore having an internal mud flow approximately 1 ", this dive as approximately 64- 2 0D ^ V 'in. This dive into the support member comprises at least a minimum measurement, and is connected to the driving unit 10 22. a communication controller latent feeder may be based on the following wire or wireless telemetry. the latent control 22 controls the measuring feeder latent feeder 64, and data transmission through the cable to the ground.

[0053] 测量潜进器64可以包括以下功能: [0053] The measurements of the latent feeder 64 may comprise the following features:

[0054]-抵抗力测量。 [0054] - resistance measurement. 这可以是基于电极的(侧记录)、基于感应线圈的、或基于环形天线的。 This may be based on an electrode (recording side), induction coil-based, or based on the loop antenna. 当限制串话干扰效应时,局部化电子设备可以用于测量。 When the limit crosstalk effects, the electronic device may be used for the localized measurement.

[0058] 一体的测井、钻探方法允许确定记录数据相对距离井孔的轴向距离的轮廓图。 [0058] The integrated logging, drilling methods allows to determine the axial distance from the recorded data corresponding to the profile of the wellbore. 可以实现垂直于主井孔的高清晰度特性。 High resolution properties can be achieved perpendicularly to the main wellbore.

[0059] 在从钻井14抽出工具之后再进入小侧孔50的能力很重要。 [0059] The ability of the tool from the well after extraction 14 and then into the small side holes 50 is important. 因为深度和方向测量也许不充分,需要钻井图像(从电子或超声图像,诸如khlumberger的FMI、OBMI或UBI工具)。 Since depth and orientation measurements may be insufficient, it requires drilling image (from an electronic or ultrasound images, such as the khlumberger FMI, OBMI or UBI tools). 这些图像让操作者目视小半径孔(其在钻井壁上呈现长椭圆)。 These images allow the operator to visually smaller pore radius (which is presented in the wall of the borehole oblong). 为了这种应用,钻探系统应该保证“整个连线(though-wiring)”,从而成像工具可以安装在反冲板下面。 For such applications, the drilling system should guarantee "the entire connection (though-wiring)", so that the imaging tool can be installed under the recoil plate. 最初进行在上面的测井,以定位小孔。 Initially logging in the above, to locate the hole. 当定位后,驱动单元10用于将钻头40下降到正确的深度(并且在正确的方向)。 After positioning, the drive unit 10 for the drill bit 40 is lowered to the proper depth (and in the right direction). 可以通过驱动单元的位移来测量为重新进入侧孔而改善的所述装置的定位以及成像系统和所述装置之间的深度偏差。 May be measured as the depth of the deviation between the positioning apparatus and an imaging system and the apparatus re-enter the side hole being improved by the displacement of the drive unit. [0060] 在图7a和7b所示的本发明的实施例中,上述工具的钻探布置由填充功能取代。 [0060] In an embodiment of the present invention is shown in Figures 7a and 7b, the drilling tool is arranged above substituted by a filling function. 在图示的示例中,预装有粘合剂浆72并在顶部74和底部76设置有活塞的衬管70连接钻探管73的端部,以与上述涉及的钻探功能相似的方式,使用驱动单元10和反冲板42钻进孔14中并前进到侧孔50中。 In the illustrated example, the pre-installed adhesive paste 72 and the top 74 and bottom 76 of the piston is provided with a liner 70 connected to drill pipe end 73, with the above-described functions of the drilling according to a similar manner using the drive drilling holes 42 and the recoil plate unit 10 proceeds to the side holes 14 and 50. 当衬管70位于侧孔50中时(图7b),操作泵送单元26,以泵送所述上活塞74下到衬管内部,强迫所述下活塞76出来(或切断衬管下端的密封),并强迫粘合剂浆进入侧孔50中围绕衬管70的环面,允许设置在此处。 When (or cut off the lower end of the liner out of the sealing piston 76 is positioned in the liner 70 (FIG. 7b) side of the hole 50, the operation of the pumping unit 26, to pump the piston 74 down to the upper inner liner, forcing the lower ), and forcing the pulp into the adhesive side bore annulus 50 surrounding the liner 70 to allow setting here. 然后,衬管70脱离钻探管73,并且工具从钻井14中抽出。 Then, the liner 70 from the drill pipe 73 and the tool 14 is withdrawn from the drilling. 如果衬管70从侧孔50延伸,它需要从钻井壁铣削部分凸起。 If the liner 70 extends from the side hole 50, which protrudes from the borehole wall requires milling portion. 这可能用特殊工具或安装到本发明工具上的合适功能单元来做。 This may be a special tool or with a suitable functional unit attached to the tool of the present invention do.

[0063] b)所述填充可以由烁石包装的过滤器组成。 [0063] b) the filling may consist of a filter package sparkle stone. 再则,为了运送到孔内,包装的烁石包含在过滤器内部,为了粘合,以上述相同的方式泵送出来。 Furthermore, in order to transport the hole, the package comprising sparkle stone inside the filter, for adhesion in the same manner as described above is pumped out. 在这种情况下,需要在屏障内部提供暂时的衬管,以让所述包装被泵送到所述屏障端部的外面。 In this case, it is necessary to provide a temporary liner inside the barrier to allow the package to be pumped into the outer end portion of the barrier.

[0064] c)具有集成阀(integrated valve)和测量系统的智能化填充(intelligentcompletion)。 [0064] c) with an integrated valve (integrated valve) intelligent filling and measurement systems (intelligentcompletion).

[0065] 在有些应用中,在主孔的一次运行中进行多项操作是很重要的。 [0065] carried out several operations in a single run some applications in the main bore is very important. 一个示例是一次侧向钻探和侧向永久传感器的安装。 One example is a lateral drilling and installation of permanent sensor in the lateral.

[0066] 对于这种应用,可以使用两个头部系统。 [0066] For such applications, the system can use two heads. 开始,该系统定向,使得钻头面对侧向的正确方向。 Starts, the system is oriented such that the direction of the right lateral face of the drill bit. 在钻探之后,定向潜进器转动钻头180度(没有反冲垫(kick pad))。 After drilling, the orientation of a latent feeder rotary drill bit 180 (not recoil pad (kick pad)). 在这种情况下,离合器从反冲垫脱离(需要时)钻头的方向。 In this case, the clutch is disengaged from the direction of bit recoil pads (if desired). 然后,另一个钻头位于反冲垫的前面, 准备进入侧孔。 Then, another bit in front of the recoil pad, ready to enter the lateral hole. 例如,这可以是用于侧向的永久安装系统。 For example, this may be a permanent installation system for the lateral.
