Abstract
THIS IMPROVED DOWNHOLE DRILLING TOOL CONTROL SYSTEM PROVIDES A SIMPLER, LESS EXPENSIVE, AND MORE RELIABLE MEANS OF OPERATING MANY TYPES OF DRILLING, TEST, AND COMPLETION TOOLS. THE SYSTEM IS OPERATED BY TEMPORARY INCREASES IN PUMP PRESSURE, WITH AUTOMATIC COMPENSATION FOR CHANGES IN HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE. THE SYSTEM PROVIDES FEEDBACK, IS OF FULL-BORE DESIGN, IS COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER TYPES OF TOOLS, AND IS SIMPLE TO USE. MULTIPLE CONTROLS CAN BE SIMULTANEOUSLY RUN. THIS TEST PROGRAM WILL DEFINE THE OPERABILITY, CHARACTERISTICS, AND GENERAL PRACTICALITY OF THE DOWNHOLE ACCUMULATOR CHARGING SYSTEM IN COMBINATION WITH THE BALL-BASED ACTUATOR SYSTEM. THE TESTING WILL BE DONE WITH AFLOW LOOP. OBTAINING SYSTEM DURABILITY AND RESPONSIVENESS WILL BE THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVES OF THE TESTING.
