  • Publication number: 20210281860
    Abstract: A system and method for implementing a distributed source coding quantization scheme is provided. In one example, two independent but statistically correlated data sources can be asymmetrically compressed so that one source is compressed at a higher ratio than the other. The resulting signals are transmitted and decoded by a receiver. The highly compressed source can utilize the non-highly compressed source as side information so as to minimize the compression loss associated with the higher compression ratio. A conditional codebook can be created that not only depends on the highly compressed quantizer, but also depends on the quantized symbol received from the non-highly compressed data source.

  • Patent number: 5427180
    Abstract: Basically the system consists of a supporting structure (1) lying in an opening in floating vessel (9) to which a group of risers (3) is connected running from sea bottom to sea surface, linking undersea oil wells to their respective production trees (5) which lie on floating vessel (9), said supporting structure (1) being provided with ball joints that enable a group of risers (3) to articulate in relation to supporting structure (1), and slide blocks to enable said supporting structure to be connected/articulated to floating vessel (9).

  • Patent number: 5363696
    Abstract: An improved method and arrangement for calculating the fluid phase fractions of gas, oil, and water and oil-water emulsion in a fluid steam flowing from an oil well which includes separating out the majority of gas from the well stream and repeatedly trapping a sample of the primarily resultant liquid well stream in a vertically disposed sampling chamber. The well stream sample is held therein to permit separation of the phase fractions to the extent possible within a reasonable time. A number of measurements of the well stream sample are taken. In addition, a number of measurements are taken of the capacitance at a plurality of discrete vertically spaced locations within the sampling chamber. These capacitance measurements relate directly to the varying permitivity of the phase fractions of gas, oil, and water and the oil-water emulsion of the sample. The measurements are processed by a data processor to provide precise information on such phase fractions and emulsion interfaces.

  • Patent number: 5252004
    Abstract: A "rod accumulator" riser tensioning cylinder assembly for use with off-shore production and exploratory drilling facilities. The tensioner is basically a hydro-pneumatic spring having a tubular cylinder equipped with a hollow rod containing sufficient volume to act as an accumulator. The rod is internally ported to the annulus of the cylinder. The cylinder exterior is coated with a material that will insulate the unit when exposed to high temperature and flame. A wear sleeve is supplied over the insulation material to provide a low friction surface for an outer, cylindrically shaped rod insulation jacket to slide over the cylinder when the rod is stroked into the cylinder. When the rod is stroked out, the jacket is also extended, protecting the rod from flame and high temperature due to its insulative properties. This is a low mass and low volume system, with low lateral area so that an increased number of such cylinder assemblies can be provided in a given horizontal area.
