7697141, Apr 13, 2010
Filed:
Dec 8, 2005
Appl. No.:
11/297282
Inventors:
Christopher M. Jones - Missouri City TX,
Louis W. Elrod - Houston TX,
Assignee:
Halliburton Energy Services, Inc. - Houston TX
International Classification:
G01N 21/55
US Classification:
356445
Abstract:
A multivariate optical element (MOE) calculation device is used in an apparatus for determining a property of petroleum in real time flowing in a pipe in petroleum field stream pipes or pipe line. Multiple apparatuses are provided for determining the amount of each of a plurality of properties. An internal reflectance element (IRE) is used to determine the property of the petroleum from a surface of the petroleum flowing in a pipe. A cleaning apparatus is provided to clean the surface of the IRE in the pipe and a turbulence generator is provided in the pipe to insure homogeneity of the petroleum being analyzed prior to analysis. A bellows may be provided the apparatus housing to compensate for pressure differentials between the housing and the flowing petroleum in the pipe. Various embodiments are disclosed.

System For Predicting Changes In A Drilling Event During Wellbore Drilling Prior To The Occurrence Of The Event

View page
US Patent:
7762131, Jul 27, 2010
Filed:
Dec 19, 2007
Appl. No.:
11/960621
Inventors:
Emad B. Ibrahim - Houston TX,
Louis W. Elrod - Houston TX,
Christopher M. Jones - Missouri City TX,
Sara Shayegi - Houston TX,
Timothy O. Wiemers - Houston TX,
Roger L. Schultz - Aubrey TX,
Craig Godfrey - Dallas TX,
International Classification:
E21B 47/08
US Classification:
7315255
Abstract:
A system for drilling a wellbore includes a prediction unit operable to predict a change in a drilling event while the wellbore is being drilled and prior to the drilling event change occurring. The prediction unit monitors surface and downhole data and well inflows to predict drilling events. The prediction unit may activate alarms for predefined drilling conditions, such as a kick alarm to provide an early warning of a dangerous influx of formation fluids into the wellbore.
