  • Patent number: 11371340
    Abstract: A downhole tool is placed in a borehole of a subsurface formation. The downhole tool comprises a plurality of calipers arranged around a circumference of the downhole tool. A plurality of standoff measurements is received for different rotation angles of the downhole tool, wherein each standoff measurement is indicative of a distance between one of the plurality of calipers and a wall of the borehole. A plurality of apparent diameters of the borehole is determined for the different rotation angles of the downhole tool based on the plurality of standoff measurements and a radius of the downhole tool. A probability function is determined based on the plurality of apparent diameters and at least one of a semiminor axis, semimajor axis, and ellipticity of the borehole is identified based on the probability function.

  • Publication number: 20220179926
    Abstract: In network devices, during manufacturing, input for designation of a region code to be a non-specific region code is stored in a BIOS memory of the network device, and a specific region code is stored off the BIOS. During boot up, the BIOS is checked for a specific region code to regulate wireless transmissions at a physical location of operation. Responsive to receiving the non-specific region code from BIOS, the specific region code is requested from a region code server based on a network device identifier. Once received, the region code is stored in flash memory, until rebooted or otherwise reset, rather than BIOS.

  • Publication number: 20220152433
    Abstract: A reusable, protective face mask has two detachable filter trays that attach on each side of the mask, a soft elastomeric face seal, and straps to go around the user's head. Exhalations and inhalations can pass through the same filter material. The filter trays can accept arbitrary filter media. A forward-facing port can be used to increase speech intelligibility by transmitting sound through a diaphragm without a prohibitive amount of distortion. Manufacture of the mask is facilitated because the mask body and the other mask components can be produced by injection molding. Decontamination and sterilization are facilitated because the mask can be fully disassembled.

  • Patent number: 11320560
    Abstract: A ranging system using spatially continuous filtering techniques to constrain ranging measurements, thereby improving ranging calculations between a bottom-hole-assembly and at least one target well. By taking advantage of the spatial continuity of the wellbore geometry, a quality check of a ranging measurement is performed using ranging measurements acquired at prior depths. Thus, the methods described herein provide improved ranging and direction estimates, as well as prediction of ranging and direction of the target well ahead of the bottom-hole-assembly.

  • Patent number: 11294092
    Abstract: A logging tool having a transmitter and receiver is positioned in a geological formation. While the logging tool is static, a transmit input signal is applied to a transmitter to cause the transmitter to induce a transmit output signal in the form of an electromagnetic field into a formation. While the logging tool is static, a formation signal is received based on the transmit output signal. The formation signal may be a voltage indicative of an induced polarization in the formation based on the transmit output signal. A complex resistivity of the formation is determined based on the formation signal.

  • Patent number: 11280929
    Abstract: A substance saturation sensing method includes making a resistivity measurement of a formation proximate to a well with a logging tool prior to installation of a casing string in the well. After the casing string is installed in the well, a first set of measurements of the formation is made with a monitoring system to generate a measured response. A set of calibration values is calculated based on the first set of measurements to produce a resistivity that matches the resistivity measurement. A second set of measurements of the formation is made with the monitoring system during or after saturating of a substance occurs in the formation. At least one parameter indicative of the saturating of the substance in the formation is determined based on the second set of the measurements and the set of calibration values.
