  • Patent number: 11120515
    Abstract: An example system is configured for displaying enhancement options and financial analysis. The system may include a server, third party data sources and an augmented reality computing device that includes a processing unit and system memory. The augmented reality computing device is configured to obtain user input regarding a property enhancement option; render the property enhancement options in augmented reality; obtain financial data from the server and the third party data sources; responsive to the obtained user input, automatically generate a financial analysis of the property enhancement option, wherein the financial analysis is based on the obtained financial data; and render the financial analysis with the obtained property enhancement option in augmented reality.

  • Patent number: 11027457
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are disclosed for a mixing system with a recirculation pump and a sensor configured to measure a property of a fluid discharged from the recirculation pump, wherein the sensor may transmit the property to a control system to allow an operator to adjust the mixing system in response to changes in the measurement signal.

  • Patent number: 10414966
    Abstract: A settable composition may be designed to thicken at substantially the same time downhole and/or set at substantially the same time downhole independent of when the settable composition was introduced into the wellbore by varying the concentration of set retarders and/or set accelerators during placement of settable compositions. For example, a method may include introducing a settable composition into a wellbore, the settable composition having an initial portion with a first concentration of a set-time additive, a middle portion with a second concentration of a set-time additive, and a final portion with a third concentration of a set-time additive; choosing the first and the third concentrations of the set-time additive so that the initial portion has a longer set-time than the final portion; and thickening the settable, wherein the initial and final portions thicken to exceed a consistency of about 70 Bc within about 3 hours of each other.
