  • Patent number: 10466375
    Abstract: A method for automatic interpretation of bulls-eye and sinusoidal features observed in LWD images is disclosed. In some embodiments, the method includes an automatic workflow for extracting smooth contours from images that demarcate boundaries of structural features, followed by projection of the contours to three-dimensional (3D) point clouds in the well coordinate system for structural interpretation. The method may characterize both sinusoidal features and bulls-eye features, taking into account variations of formation dip/azimuth, or well inclination/azimuth, on the topology of a structural feature. The disclosed method may be sufficiently fast for use in real-time analysis and interpretation, or to provide constraints for physics-based data inversion processing.

  • Patent number: 10449755
    Abstract: A movable member is gripped in a delamination-start configuration, and the other-end side of a rib of a delamination member is pressed towards the other-end side of a flexible plate. The flexible plate then warps and deforms about the other end side of the flexible plate, which is supported by a support member, the flexible plate deforming along the direction in which delamination progresses. In concert with the delamination action, a reinforcing plate also warps and deforms along with the flexible plate, the reinforcing plate being vacuum-chucked to an air-permeable electroconductive sheet on the flexible plate, and the reinforcing plate is sequentially delaminated from a substrate 2 along the direction in which delamination progresses.

  • Patent number: 10451769
    Abstract: A method for transforming a 2D or 3D earth volume geometry into a 1D earth volume geometry includes performing a measurement using the measurement sensor in a wellbore. A layer boundary in the 2D or 3D earth volume geometry that is nearest to the measurement sensor is identified. A vector from the measurement sensor is generated toward the nearest layer boundary. A first intersection is identified between the vector and the nearest layer boundary, and a second intersection is identified between the vector and another layer boundary. Simulated boundaries that extend through the first and second intersections and are perpendicular to the vector are generated. The 1D earth volume geometry that is bounded by the first and second intersections is identified. A property value is extracted from the 2D or 3D earth volume geometry between the first and second intersections. The property value is assigned to the 1D earth geometry.
