Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • The following is also based upon and claims priority to U.S. provisional application serial No. 60/339,512, filed Oct. 26, 2001.[0001]
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of Invention [0002]
  • The present invention relates to the field of completions. More specifically, the invention relates to a device and method for a completing a well using an inner completion string. [0003]
  • 2. Related Art [0004]
  • Oil companies are continually improving their recovery systems to produce oil and gas more efficiently and economically from sources that are continually more difficult to exploit, without significantly increasing the cost to the consumer. One relatively recent development to increase production is the use of intelligent completions. Intelligent completions generally include downhole monitoring devices and control devices that are remotely actuatable from the surface. Intelligent completions as well as other types of completions require the use of control lines (e.g., electrical, fiber optic, and hydraulic lines and combinations thereof) that extend through the well to equipment positioned therein. Routing of the control lines is often an issue in a number of completions. For example, in sand control completions, the control line is typically run with the sand screens that are then gravel packed. When the production string is run and stabbed into the polished bore receptacle (PBR) of the sand screen completion, the control lines installed with the sand control completion must be connected to the surface. This connection is generally made with a wet connect which are generally considered undesirable. [0005]
  • Additionally, once the sand control completion is gravel packed in the well, it is very difficult or impossible to remove. Accordingly, the equipment installed in the sand control completion generally cannot be replaced easily. [0006]
  • In sand control completions having multiple zones, it is desirable to separate the production from and injection into the various zones. [0007]
  • Also, there is a need for remedial completions inside preexisting completions or as a redundant option for new completions. [0008]
  • SUMMARY
  • In general, according to one embodiment, the present invention provides a sand control completion in which an inner completion is run into a sand screen. The inner completion comprises the flow control equipment as well as the control line to the surface. In another embodiment, the present invention comprises an isolation seal assembly having a control line passageway therethrough. [0009]
  • Other features and embodiments will become apparent from the following description, the drawings, and the claims.[0010]
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • The manner in which these objectives and other desirable characteristics can be obtained is explained in the following description and attached drawings in which: [0011]
  • FIG. 1 illustrates an embodiment of the present invention showing multiple zones. [0012]
  • FIG. 2 illustrations a blown-up portion of FIG. 1 of the present invention. [0013]
  • FIG. 3 illustrates an alternative embodiment of the present invention. [0014]
  • FIG. 4 is an end view of an embodiment of a seal assembly of the present invention. [0015]
  • FIG. 5 is a side, cross sectional view of an embodiment of a seal assembly of the present invention. [0016]
  • FIG. 6 illustrates an alternative embodiment of the present invention. [0017]
  • FIG. 7 illustrates an alternative embodiment in which a PBR is positioned between a screen and a circulating valve.[0018]
  • It is to be noted, however, that the appended drawings illustrate only typical embodiments of this invention and are therefore not to be considered limiting of its scope, for the invention may admit to other equally effective embodiments. [0019]
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • In the following description, numerous details are set forth to provide an understanding of the present invention. However, it will be understood by those skilled in the art that the present invention may be practiced without these details and that numerous variations or modifications from the described embodiments may be possible. [0020]
  • Although the figures show the invention used in a multi-zone completion, the present invention may be used in a single zone completion. Further, the present invention may be employed in some of the zones (e.g., one of the zones) of a multi-zone completion if desired. [0021]
  • Referring to FIG. 1, a well [0022] 2 having a casing 4 therein extends through a plurality of perforated zones 6. Each zone is completed with a sand screen completion 10. The sand screen completion 10 may be as shown or use other sand screen completion methodologies and equipment. In the embodiment shown, the sand screen completion 10 comprises a sump packer 12 having a polished bore receptacle (PBR) 14 therein. Note that the PBR 30 may be incorporated into a separate piece of the completion. However, it is generally described herein as attached to or part of the packer for ease of discussion. The sump packer 12 is placed and set in the well below a zone 6. A sand screen assembly 16, comprising a sand screen 18 and a seal assembly 20 at its lower end, is attached to the lower end of a packer 22. The sand screen assembly 16 is positioned in the well with the seal assembly 20 in sealing engagement with the PBR 14 of the sump packer 12. The packer 22 of the sand screen assembly 16, which also has a PBR 14 therein, is set, thereby isolating the associated zone 6 between the packers 12, 22.
  • If desired, a service string (not shown) is run into the well and the zone [0023] 6 is gravel packed by any desired method. U.S. Pat. No. 6,220,353, issued Apr. 24, 2001, discusses a gravel packing procedure and associated tools and is hereby incorporated by reference. Other methods of gravel packing the zone 6 are known and may be used with the present invention.
  • If the well has multiple zones they may also be completed as described above. For example, the seal assembly [0024] 20 of a second sand screen assembly 16 stabs into the PBR 14 of the previously installed sand screen assembly 16. Once the packer 22 of the second sand screen assembly 16 is set, the packers 22 of the two sand screen assemblies 16 isolate the additional, upper zone. The second zone may then be gravel packed. Additional zones may be completed in like manner.
  • In an alternative embodiment, a multizone well sand screen completion [0025] 10 may be completed as described in U.S. patent application Ser. No. 09/631,859, filed Aug. 3, 2000 which is hereby incorporated herein by reference. In this embodiment, the gravel pack is accomplished through-tubing so that all of the hardware for the sand screen completion 10 for all zones may be installed before the gravel pack operation is performed. Similarly, a multizone well sand screen completion 10 may be completed as described in U.S. Pat. No. 6,311,772, issued Nov. 6, 2001 which is hereby incorporated herein by reference or may be completed in other known manners.
  • Above and below each of the sand screens [0026] 18 is an inner PBR 30. Note that, rather than providing inner PBRs 30 above and below each sand screen 18 in each sand screen assembly 16 of a multi-zone well 2, each sand screen assembly 16 may have one inner PBR 30 below the sand screen 18. However, the overall completion has at least one PBR 30 between the zones of the well. The inner PBR 30 of the two sand screen assemblies 16 providing isolation of the lowermost of the two sand screen assemblies 16. The uppermost sand screen assembly 16 of the sand control completion 10 would then have an inner PBR 30 above its sand screen 18 to provide for isolation of that uppermost zone. However, the use of an upper and lower inner PBR 30 in each sand screen assembly 16 provides a redundant seal and a more reliable system. Generally, the sand screen assemblies 16 have a circulating valve 32 (FIG. 7) above the sand screen 18 that is used during gravel packing. The upper inner PBR 30 provides additional reliability in the case of a leak in the circulating valve. If a PBR 30 is placed between the circulating valve and the sand screen 18, the circulating valve is isolated from the production by the PBR 30 once a completion 40 (discussed below) is put into place.
  • A completion [0027] 40 run into the well 2 is inserted into the sand screen completion 10. Seal assemblies 42 of the completion 40 mate with the inner PBRs 30 to isolate the associated zone(s). Flow entering the annulus formed between the sand screen 18 and the completion 40 is controlled with valves 44 in the completion 40. The seal assemblies 42 and inner PBRs 30 provide for the control of flow through the valves 44. Control lines 46 extend along the completion 40 through the seal assemblies 42 to provide power and telemetry to the valves 44 or other equipment in the well 2.
  • In the embodiment shown, the completion [0028] 40 comprises a production tubing 50 (or conduit) extending to the surface of the well 2. A safety valve 52 and a packer 54 are positioned in the well 2 about the production tubing 50 above the sand control completion 10. A seal assembly 42 attached to the production tubing 50 mates with the uppermost inner PBR 30. Below the seal assembly 42, is a control valve 44. A seal assembly 42 below the control valve 44 mates with the inner PBR 30 below the sand screen 18 of the associated zone 6 to isolate the zone. Together, the seal assemblies 42 above and below a control valve 44 and the equipment therebetween are referred to collectively as an isolation assembly 56. FIG. 2 illustrates one isolation assembly 56. Although primarily described herein as isolating a single zone 6, an isolation assembly 56 may bridge more than one zone 6 if desired.
  • A control line [0029] 46 extends from the valve 44 and through the seal assembly 42 to a position above the sand control completion 10. Generally, the control line 46 extends to the surface, but may extend to a downhole controller, power supply, or telemetry equipment, such as an inductive coupler or acoustic transmitter. Examples of control lines 46 are electrical, hydraulic, fiber optic and combinations of thereof. Other equipment may also be provided in the isolation assembly 56 or isolated portion that requires a control line 46 connected thereto. For example, the completion 40 may have intelligent completions devices such as gauges, sensors, valves, sampling devices, temperature sensors, pressure sensors, flow rate measurement devices, oil/water/gas ratio measurement devices, scale detectors, actuators, locks, release mechanisms, equipment sensors (e.g., vibration sensors), sand detection sensors, water detection sensors, data recorders, viscosity sensors, density sensors, bubble point sensors, composition sensors, resistivity array devices and sensors, acoustic devices and sensors, other telemetry devices, near infrared sensors, gamma ray detectors, H2S detectors, CO2 detectors, downhole memory units, downhole controllers, locators, and other downhole devices therein. In addition, the control line 46 itself may comprise an intelligent completions device as in the example of a fiber optic line that provides functionality, such as temperature measurement, pressure measurement, and the like. In one example, the fiber optic line provides a distributed temperature functionality so that the temperature along the length of the fiber optic line may be determined. The control line 46 for such equipment would also extend through the seal assembly 42.
  • In a multi-zone well, such as that shown in FIG. 1, the completion [0030] 40 has additional isolation assemblies 56 corresponding to associated zones 6 as desired.
  • In one embodiment, a locator device [0031] 60 ensures the proper alignment between the completion 40 and the sand control completion 10. An example of a locator device is shown in FIG. 1. In that example, the bottom 62 of completion 40 lands on a shoulder 64 connected to a lower end of the sand control completion 10. In that example, the shoulder 64 is positioned below the sump packer 12. Numerous other types of locators may be used.
  • FIGS. 4 and 5 provide a more detailed illustration of the seal assembly [0032] 42. In many cases, the radial limitations of placing a completion 40 within the sand control completion 10 are stringent. To facilitate placement of the control lines 46 in the radially restricted space, the seal assembly 42 may be eccentric with the primary production passageway 66 offset from the centerline of the seal assembly 42. An eccentric arrangement provides a relatively thicker side through which control line(s) 46 may extend. The control lines 46 extend through control line passageways provided in the body of the seal assembly 42.
  • In another embodiment, shown in FIG. 3, the completion [0033] 40 is used in conjunction with a preexisting completion 70 to provide a remedial system. As an example, a completion 70, as described in U.S. patent application Ser. No. 09/732,134, filed Dec. 7, 2000 which is hereby incorporated by reference herein, is provided in a well 2. In one embodiment, the completion 70 has a sand screen 18 with a gravel pack. A base pipe 72 of the sand screen 18 is unperforated and defines a flow annulus 74 between the sand screen 18 and the base pipe 72. The annulus communicates with a flow control valve 44 that controls the flow from the annulus 74 into the production string 50.
  • In the present embodiment, the completion [0034] 70 further includes a pair of inner PBRs 30 isolating the inlet to the production tubing (i.e., the valve 44 port). For example, an inner PBR 30 may be placed below the valve 44 and above the sand screen 18. In this way, if the valve 44 fails, it can be locked open and an inner completion 40 may be run inside completion 70. As in the previously described embodiment, the seal assemblies 42 of the completion 40 may mate with the inner PBRs to isolate the incoming flow which may then be controlled by the valve 44 in the inner completion 40. This system will work in other situations wherein there is a specific area of ingress into the production tubing and an interior completion 40 is desired to control the flow therethrough, such as in cases of remediation.
  • Although the isolation is described herein as using PBRs and seal assemblies, other types of isolation devices, such as packers and cup packers, may be used. In one embodiment an inner completion [0035] 40 of the present invention may be used in a pre-existing completion that does not have a PBR. In this embodiment, the inner completion uses inner packers 80 to isolate between the various zones. In this way, an intelligent completion may be provided in an existing well. Referring to FIG. 6, one example of this embodiment is shown. In FIG. 6, the pre-existing completion comprises an upper packer 22, a sand screen 18 in each of the zones, and a packer 22 isolating the two zones. The inner completion 40 comprises a valve 44 for each of the zones and inner packers 80 on isolating the valves 44 from one another. The inner packers 22 seal between the inner string 82 and the pre-existing completion. The inner packers 22 and valves 44 are positioned in the well so that flow of each of the screens or zones is isolated from the flow of other screens or zones (although one valve could be used for multiple zones if desired). A control line 46 may run from the surface or from a downhole controller to each of the valves 44 so that the position of the valve may be controlled. Other intelligent completions devices may be placed in the inner completion 40 as well. The control line 46 may extend through bypass lines in the inner packers 80 which may be eccentric to provide additional area for running of the control lines 46 therethrough.
  • When a device is described herein as providing a seal, some leakage through the seal may occur. Thus, a seal includes an arrangement that substantially restricts the flow. The term “seal” as used herein refers generically to seal assemblies, packers, cup packers, and other isolation devices. [0036]
  • Also note that in each of the above-described embodiments, the sand screen [0037] 18 may be replaced with a slotted liner as an alternative form of sand control. The term “sand control device” is used to generally describe sand screens, liners, and other types of conduits used to prevent migration of sand into the production.
  • Although only a few exemplary embodiments of this invention have been described in detail above, those skilled in the art will readily appreciate that many modifications are possible in the exemplary embodiments without materially departing from the novel teachings and advantages of this invention. Accordingly, all such modifications are intended to be included within the scope of this invention as defined in the following claims. In the claims, means-plus-function clauses are intended to cover the structures described herein as performing the recited function and not only structural equivalents, but also equivalent structures. Thus, although a nail and a screw may not be structural equivalents in that a nail employs a cylindrical surface to secure wooden parts together, whereas a screw employs a helical surface, in the environment of fastening wooden parts, a nail and a screw may be equivalent structures. It is the express intention of the applicant not to invoke 35 U.S.C. §112, paragraph 6 for any limitations of any of the claims herein, except for those in which the claim expressly uses the words ‘means for’ together with an associated function.
