  • Patent number: 10287855
    Abstract: An embodiment of a method of performing an energy industry operation includes storing one or more sets of instructions at a storage location accessible by a controller configured to control aspects of an energy industry operation, the one or more sets of instructions retrieved from a library of sets of instructions, each set of instructions prescribing a standard procedure for performing a process forming part of the energy industry operation, the standard procedure based on best operating practices developed from previously performed operations independent of the process to be performed. The method also includes deploying a carrier in a borehole in an earth formation and performing an energy industry operation, monitoring the operation and, in response to detecting a condition associated with the process, automatically retrieving the set of instructions corresponding to the process, and automatically performing the process by the controller according to the retrieved set of instructions.

  • Patent number: 8021369
    Abstract: A femoral neck resection guide assembly for use in minimally invasive hip surgery is disclosed. The assembly includes a guide portion having at least two spaced resection guide surfaces for guiding a cutting tool. A bushing and fastener elements are also included in the assembly for cooperating with and fixing the guide portion to the bone. Preferably, the assembly allows for initial connection of the guide portion to the bone and polyaxial rotation of the guide before such is statically affixed.

  • Patent number: 7926588
    Abstract: To improve drilling performance, a drilling fluid is selected based on one or more criteria and to have at least one target characteristic. Drilling equipment is used to drill a wellbore, and the selected drilling fluid is provided into the wellbore during drilling with the drilling equipment. The at least one target characteristic of the drilling fluid includes an ability of the drilling fluid to penetrate into formation cuttings during drilling to weaken the formation cuttings.

  • Publication number: 20090157190
    Abstract: A device for use in connection with a bone, comprising a first surface and a second surface spaced apart from each other at a predetermined distance and angled relative to each other along a portion thereof. The device having a first ridge projecting from the first surface in a direction away from the second surface, the first ridge extending substantially along a length of the first surface, and a second ridge projecting from the second surface in a direction away from the first surface, the second ridge extending substantially along a length of the second surface in a direction substantially parallel to the first ridge. The device further includes a remote surface positioned more distant from the center of a bone, a proximate surface positioned more near the center of a bone, a fixed end surface, and a removable end surface extending in a first direction.

  • Publication number: 20050090824
    Abstract: A method for inserting a longitudinal member into a body of a patient includes holding the longitudinal member in a first position with a surgical tool. The longitudinal member is moved through an access port in the first position with the surgical tool. The longitudinal member is rotated from the first position into a second position extending transverse to the first position without releasing the longitudinal member from the surgical tool. The surgical tool includes a holding device for holding the longitudinal member in a first position. An articulating device rotates the longitudinal member from the first position into the second position without releasing the longitudinal member.

  • Patent number: 6386297
    Abstract: A method is provided for generating an indicator of potential bit abrasion in a particular wellbore. Forensic wellbore data is obtained from at least one previously drilled wellbore which is determined to be comparable to the particular target wellbore. Typically, the comparable wellbore comprises an “offset” wellbore which is proximate the target wellbore, and which has similar geologic features. An inference engine computer program is provided which consists of executable program instructions. It is adapted to utilize a plurality of wellbore parameters, including the forensic wellbore data. The inference engine includes at least one rule matrix which defines a plurality of fuzzy sets. These fuzzy sets establish correspondence between the plurality of wellbore parameters and the indictor of potential bit abrasion. The inference engine computer program is loaded onto a data processing system. At least the forensic wellbore data is supplied as an input to the inference engine computer program.
