  • Publication number: 20220182882
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for controlling device use of available networks, e.g., cellular and WiFi, are described. End devices report key performance indicator and resource utilization information, e.g., on a per application basis, to a configuration server. The configuration server determines, based on the received information, e.g., using machine learning and/or artificial intelligence, sets of configuration profiles, each configuration profile including one or more set of applications for which an end device should use a particular network. An exemplary configuration profile may identify a first set of applications for which a first network is to be used, e.g., a cellular network such as a P-LTE network, and a second set of applications for which a second network, e.g. a WiFi network, is to be used. The configuration server selects a configuration profile that is best suited for a particular end device and communicates that selected profile to the end device.

  • Publication number: 20210274499
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for managing frequency reassignment within wireless access nodes so as to minimize data session disruption. In one embodiment, the frequency reassignments occur within a quasi-licensed system utilizing 3.5 GHz CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service) spectrum, and a reassignment of wireless spectrum that mitigates disruption or loss of continuity to existing data sessions of users of devices associated with a CBSD/xNB is provided via notification of the associated devices (e.g., Category B Consumer Premises Equipment or CPE, such as an FWA) of the reassignment by the CBSD/xNB. In one variant, the associated devices are instructed by the CBSD/xNB to invoke a “wait and re-establish” protocol that obviates a full frequency band rescan in favor of a designated target frequency provided to the CBSD/xNB by the cognizant SAS or DP.

  • Patent number: 10520641
    Abstract: Estimating parameters of interest of a formation, including density, porosity, and fluid saturation. Methods relate to gamma ray energy spectra calibration for a radiation detector including generating a calibration radiation spectrum using measurements of radiation with the detector in a time interval wherein the radiation comprises predominantly gamma rays emitted by decay of radionuclides produced by neutron activation reactions resulting from neutron irradiation, the time interval following a prior time interval corresponding to thermal neutrons produced from the irradiation; making at least one other radiation measurement with the detector outside the time interval; and producing a calibrated radiation measurement from the at least one other radiation measurement using the calibration radiation spectrum. The measurements may be taken in the time interval by conveying the radiation detector in the borehole at high speed and using a background gate of the detector.

  • Patent number: 10415371
    Abstract: A method of estimating properties of wellbore cement by penetrating the cement, and monitoring the amount of energy or power required for penetrating the cement. Penetrators include a drill bit that bores into the cement, and probes or pins that are forced into the cement. The energy or power monitored can be current and/or voltage supplied to a motor that drives the drill bit or probe. Comparing the monitored energy or power with that required to penetrate a reference cement sample of known properties can yield information about the cement being sampled. When the wellbore is lined with multiple coaxially disposed strings of casing with cement between adjacent strings and on the outer surface of the outer string; the method further includes obtaining core samples from portions of each string, each layer of cement, and formation adjacent the wellbore.

  • Patent number: 10401203
    Abstract: A flowmeter for use in a borehole that includes a transmitter and receivers spaced axially away from the transmitter. Energizing the transmitter creates electrical field lines that extend between the transmitter and the receivers, and that pass through fluid flowing past the flowmeter. The magnitude of the electrical field lines at each of the receivers is measured, and varies in response to different types of fluid flowing past the flowmeter, and changes in phase of the fluid. Example transmitters and receivers include coils and electrodes. The transmitters and receivers can define elongate arrays, where the arrays are arranged parallel to, oblique, or perpendicular to an axis of the borehole. Multiple array orientations provide a radial cross sectional image of the flowing fluid. Thus not only can multi-phase flow be detected, but the type of flow regime can be identified.

  • Patent number: 10288764
    Abstract: A method of estimating one or both of compaction or subsidence of a subterranean formation with gravity measurements. The free air gradient at surface is measured and compared with gravity measured in a borehole that intersects the formation. At a later point in time, values for gravity are re-measured, differences between the measured values at the initial point in time, and the later point in time are estimated. The differences are used to estimate the compaction or subsidence. A gravimeter can be used for measuring gravity, markers in the formation can be used in conjunction with the gravimeter.
