  • Patent number: 11230919
    Abstract: The disclosure features methods of analyzing a fluid extracted from a reservoir, the methods including introducing a first composition featuring a first complexing agent into a reservoir at a first location, extracting a fluid from the reservoir at a second location different from the first location, combining the fluid with a second composition featuring a concentration of a lanthanide ion to form a third composition featuring a concentration of a complex formed by the first complexing agent and the lanthanide ion, exposing a quantity of the complex to electromagnetic radiation for a first time period ending at a time t0, detecting fluorescence emission from the quantity of the complex for a second time period starting at a time t1>t0, where t1?t0 is greater than 2 microseconds, and determining information about a fluid flow path between the first location and the second location.

  • Publication number: 20210402085
    Abstract: An insertion device to assist in accessing an access port that has been subcutaneously implanted in the body of a patient is disclosed. The implanted access port is accessed by a needle of a needle assembly, such as a needle-based infusion set. The insertion device may include a body having a stabilizing portion and a guide portion. The stabilizing portion stabilizes a position of the implanted access port when the body is placed on the skin of the patient atop the implanted access port. The guide portion is designed to guide a needle of the needle assembly along a predetermined path such that the needle transcutaneously pierces a septum of the implanted access port.

  • Patent number: 11092003
    Abstract: Tracing subterranean fluid flow includes providing a first polymeric tracer to a first injector, collecting a first aqueous sample from a first producer, and assessing the presence of the first polymeric tracer in the first aqueous sample. The first polymeric tracer includes a first polymer formed from at least a first monomer. The presence of the first polymeric tracer in the first aqueous sample is assessed by removing water from the first aqueous sample to yield a first dehydrated sample. pyrolyzing the first dehydrated sample to yield a first gaseous sample, and assessing the presence of a pyrolization product of the first polymer in the first gaseous sample. The presence of the pyrolization product of the first polymer in the first gaseous sample is indicative of the presence of a first subterranean flow pathway between the first injector location and the first producer location.

  • Publication number: 20210116371
    Abstract: Compositions, articles, systems, and methods for sensing and/or authentication using luminescence imaging are generally provided. In some embodiments, an article (or packaging material of an article) is associated with an emissive material comprising an emissive species (e.g., a luminescent species). In some cases, the emissive species has an emission lifetime of at least 10 nanoseconds (ns). In some cases, a characteristic of an article (e.g., identity, authenticity, age, quality, purity) may be determined by obtaining an image (or series of images) comprising time-dependent information related to an emissive species. In certain instances, for example, the emission lifetime of an emissive species may be determined from an image (or series of images). Since the emission lifetime of an emissive species may be modified by a number of factors, including but not limited to binding or proximity to other molecules (e.g.

  • Patent number: 10975685
    Abstract: A method includes obtaining a sample of a fluid from a subterranean zone while the fluid is being extracted from the zone. A chemical composition of the sample is measured. A temperature and a pressure of the subterranean zone are measured. The measured properties are associated with a time point. The measured properties are incorporated into a set of historical data. A chemical composition of a fluid to be extracted from the subterranean zone at a future time point is determined based on the set of historical data. A presence of a liquid phase in the fluid to be extracted from the subterranean zone at the future time point is determined. A flow rate of the fluid being extracted from the subterranean zone is adjusted in response to determining the presence of the liquid phase in the fluid to be extracted from the subterranean zone at the future time point.

  • Patent number: 10911250
    Abstract: Various embodiments are directed to a system for accessing a self-encrypting drive (SED) based on a blind challenge authentication response mechanism (BCRAM). An SED may be authenticated within a system, for example, upon resuming from a sleep state, based on a challenge generated within the SED, signed using a private key by a trusted execution environment (TEE) and authenticated using a corresponding public key within the SED.

  • Patent number: 10808529
    Abstract: A method for surface logging a well uses a plurality of polymeric taggants distinguishable from each other. The method includes selecting the polymeric taggants that have ceiling temperatures that do not interfere with pyrograms from source rock decomposition and adding each of the plurality of polymeric taggants to a circulating drilling fluid in a sequence while drilling the well. A sample of drill cuttings carried by the circulating drilling fluid is then taken. The method also includes measuring, using pyrolysis-gas chromatographymass spectrometry, concentrations of individual polymeric taggants attached to the drill cuttings in the sample and analyzing, using pyrolysis-gas chromatographymass spectrometry, properties of the drill cuttings. A depth associated with the sample is identified based, at least in part, on the measured concentrations of individual polymeric taggants and on the sequence.
