Patents by Inventor Maria Fernanda LEON CARRERA

Maria Fernanda LEON CARRERA has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10794155
    Abstract: The invention is a method for exploiting a subterranean formation including hydrocarbons with at least one lithologic facies of the formation having undergone at least one diagenetic phase over geological times. From at least one sample of rock obtained from the formation, from measured production data relating to the formation and from a meshed representation representative of the formation, each mesh of the meshed representation is determined including at least one indicator relating to the distribution of the facies present in the mesh. The method comprises a step of history matching in which at least one of the adjustment parameters is the diagenetic state of the identified facies.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10656068
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for providing a numerical model of a sample of rock that, when used for flow simulations, it reproduces the porosity and the permeability according to the measurements taken in said sample of the rock. The method is characterized in that the structure and the properties of the numerical model are populated randomly ensuring that the global behavior reproduces the measurements.
