  • Publication number: 20150329387
    Abstract: The present invention relates to systems and methods for the on-site generation (for example at oil well drilling operations, oil well hydraulic fracturing operations, makeup water pipeline transportation systems, and oil and gas refining operations) of haloamine chemistry such as chloramines and/or bromamines. The invention also relates to the application of the generated haloamines to control microorganisms such as bacteria as well their harmful byproducts such as hydrogen sulfide and other undesired substances found in oil and gas industries.

  • Publication number: 20080150788
    Abstract: A system for tagging and locating a target that may include a projectile frangible on impact, a RF tagging system located in the projectile, and a bonding agent located in the projectile for bonding the RF tagging system to the target. The RF tagging system may include a RF circuitry, an antenna, and a power source to transmit the location of the RF tagging system.

  • Publication number: 20070119495
    Abstract: A system for producing electrical power a thermoelectric generator including a thermopile, a hot junction, and a cold junction. A high temperature source may be thermally coupled to the hot junction wherein the high temperature source includes heat from within the earth's surface. A low temperature source may be thermally coupled to the cold junction wherein the low temperature source comprises cold water from a body of water. The thermopile generates electricity from a temperature gradient between the hot junction and the cold junction.
