Patents by Inventor Mickael BARBIER

Mickael BARBIER 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.

  • Publication number: 20180347321
    Abstract: The invention is a method of exploiting hydrocarbons within a sedimentary basin, by stratigraphic simulation coupled with a hydrologic model and a diagenetic model. A gridded representation of the basin, comprising at least a mineralogical composition and a porosity within each cell, is determined by means of a stratigraphic simulator for at least one time step. Then, at least one hydrologic zone is delimited using a hydrologic model, and at least one chemical composition of the fluids and a direction of circulation of the fluids are determined in each cell located in the zone.
