Abstract

A measurement and communication system for use with a tubular string (3), comprises a tubular string having a plurality of self-powered, autonomous telemetry stations (20) disposed at predetermined locations along the tubular string. Each autonomous telemetry station is adapted to receive (25) at least one first signal and transmit (23) at least one second signal related to the at least one first signal. Power is extracted from potential energy sources proximate each autonomous telemetry station. A method of communicating information along a tubular string comprises, disposing an autonomous telemetry station at predetermined locations along the tubular string. A preferred transmission path is autonomously determined at each of the autonomous telemetry stations. Information is transmitted along the tubular string according to the autonomously determined preferred path.
