Possible Problems And Solutions For Shallow Testing Of MWD Instruments

Oct 15, 2019

Phenomenon: The shallow test of the instrument is normal. After working for a period of time in the well, the signal is getting weaker.

           Reason: 1: The sensor is blocked.

                 2: Mud displacement exceeds the normal range of variation.

                 3: The viscosity of the mud becomes larger or the specific gravity becomes smaller.

                 4: The pump pressure is reduced.

                 5: The rotor eccentric wear speed is reduced.

                 6: The pulser telescopic sleeve becomes larger due to the high temperature.

                 7: The outer diameter of the mushroom head becomes smaller or the inner diameter of the restrictor ring becomes larger.

                 8: Fall into foreign bodies.

                 9: The filter block pump pressure rises.

                 10: The temperature at the bottom of the well exceeds the standard, causing the probe or pulse generator to not work properly.

           Solution: 1: Replace the pressure sensor.

                     2: Adjust the displacement.

                     3: Treat the mud and reduce the viscosity.

                     4: Large-scale activity drilling tools.

                     5: Replace the downhole equipment.

                     6: Repair the mud pump.

                     7: Replace the probe if the bottom hole temperature is too high.
