SONICSYNCTM

COMMAND+CONTROL NETWORK

  • Wireless telemetry network for remote activation and control of downhole equipment
  • Can be integrated with third-party tools such as valves, samplers and firing heads
  • Interface with the SonicGauge™ to change data acquisition schedules and poll historical downhole data saved to onboard memory

OVERVIEW


The SonicSync™ Command+Control Network is a subsurface acoustic telemetry system that uses duplex (two-way) communication to interface with downhole equipment. At surface, a command tool driven by a laptop interface is temporarily attached to a production wellhead or drillpipe in order to send acoustic commands downhole to activate, control or check status and diagnostics of downhole equipment. Dependent on depth, wireless repeater stations are deployed along the tubing to boost the range of the system—effectively providing an unlimited transmission distance.


SONICGAUGE INTEGRATION

The SonicSync™ can send the following commands to the SonicGauge™:

  • Change data rate schedule to capture events such as a pressure build up (PBU)
  • Poll the onboard memory for historical data download
  • Optimise power output for long-term battery efficiency
  • Optimise acoustic output and noise filters post-installation


BESPOKE INTEGRATION

Upon request, the SonicSync™ system can be integrated with third-party equipment such as:

  • Electronic Firing Heads (TCP)
  • Downhole Shut-In Tool (DHSIT)
  • Downhole Circulating Valve
  • Fluid Samplers
