Determining Inner Geometry Properties From Eccentered Pulse-Echo Measurements in a Pipe

Sammendrag

In the petroleum industry, well integrity evaluation is an essential part of maintaining the safety and sustainability of hydrocarbon production. Ultrasonic pulse-echo cased hole logging is a widely used type of measurement for well integrity evaluation. It gives insight on casing condition and cement quality through the use of an ultrasonic transducer that ideally rotates around the center of the casing. One of the outputs of this logging is a set of inner geometry properties that describe the position of the tool and the inner radius of the casing. However, inner geometry determination is not straightforward as it has to consider the influence of tool eccentering due to gravity and tool movement, which causes the tool to rotate around another axis than the casing center. Despite its importance and wide implementation, detailed information on inner geometry determination from eccentered measurements has not been published in the scientific literature. In this study, an inner geometry determination algorithm was developed and tested on ultrasonic well log data from from the Norwegian North Sea. This algorithm estimates the inner geometry properties, i.e. the tool eccentering properties and the casing inner radius. The results show that the algorithm produces results that give a good match with the results of a reference algorithm from a service company. Our algorithm is also able to handle poor travel time measurements in a more reliable way than the reference algorithm. Hence, this article attempts to enhance and spread the knowledge of ultrasonic cased hole logging, specifically in terms of the determination of casing inner geometry.
