  • Patent number: 5099610
    Abstract: A portable livestock barrier is disclosed which includes a rigid metal panel of open grid construction that is arranged to rest in a normal operational position that is parallel to the ground to thus form a raised grid which livestock will not cross but which can be flattened to the ground against a resilient return force when a vehicle is driven across it. The rigid metal panel is supported by a resilient suspension which permits the panel to tilt with respect to its normal operating position and to be forced flat against the ground when the weight of a vehicle is applied to it. The livestock barrier does not require a pit or special surface preparation for its installation. It may be quickly installed on any solid, relatively level surface. The unit is transportable and it can be readily moved from one location to another without disassembly.

  • Patent number: 4823880
    Abstract: A threaded sleeve valve to facilitate the removal of water from gas wells having two or more gas productive zones disposed vertically along their bore. The valve is adapted to form a connection between a segregation packer and a well tubing string. In use, the valve and the segregation packer are sunk in the well to a position intermediate an upper gas productive zone and a lower gas productive zone. During normal gas production, the valve is closed and gas is collected from both zones, the gas from the lower zone passing through a vertical passage defined by the valve and continuous with the interior of the well tubing. Incidental water accumulated above the segregation packer can be removed by opening the valve and using the gas pressure of the lower productive zone to force the accumulated water upwards to the wellhead and out of the well. Once the well bore has been purged of incidental water, the valve is re-closed and normal production resumes.
