Kenton Atwood, James H Wright, Jay S Merriam: Catalyst and process for steam-reforming of hydrocarbons. United Catalysts, William R Price, November 11, 1980: US04233187 (20 worldwide citation)

An improved catalyst and an improved process for use of the catalyst in the steam-hydrocarbon reforming reaction is disclosed. The catalyst comprises a group VIII metal on a cylindrical ceramic support consisting essentially of alpha alumina and having a plurality of gas passages extending axially t ...

John H Bodine, John N Gallagher, James H Wright: Geophysical exploration using velocity spectra regional coherency peaks. Amoco Corporation, January 8, 1991: US04984220 (20 worldwide citation)

Regional coherency maxima are displayed in various domains and interactively edited to produce stacking velocity functions, horizon velocity functions, and sets of edited velocity spectra regional coherency peaks for use in geophysical exploration for oil and gas.

John H Bodine, Jonathan Bork, Richard M Alford, James H Wright, Leon A Thomsen: Method of seismic exploration including processing and displaying seismic data to quantitatively distinguish among seismic events. Standard Oil Company, Timothy D Stanley, February 24, 1987: US04646239 (19 worldwide citation)

A method for quantitatively distinguishing seismic events on a seismic record for inferring changes in the geological character of the subterranean formations. Reflection coefficients are obtained for such seismic events and a first set of attributes indicative of amplitude variations in the offset ...

Kenton Atwood, James H Wright: Catalyst for steam reforming of hydrocarbons. United Catalysts, William R Price, June 29, 1982: US04337178 (13 worldwide citation)

An improved catalyst is described which comprises a normally cylindrical refractory support having gas passages communicating from end to end and oriented parallel to its axis and having gas passages in the shape of segments of circles (pie-shaped), square, hexagonal, circular, oval or sinusoidal. T ...

James H Wright: Doorknob disabling device. Douglas S Bishop, December 9, 2003: US06658906 (11 worldwide citation)

A device for temporarily disabling a doorknob attached to a hinged door. The device covers the doorknob with a rigid enclosure, preventing rotation of the doorknob to move the associated locking bolt. A retaining unit is mated with an extension from the rigid enclosure in a male-female relationship, ...

James H Wright: Method for enhancing common depth point seismic data. Standard Oil Company, Stanley Timothy D, June 30, 1987: US04677597 (7 worldwide citation)

A method for processing and displaying seismic data. More particularly, a novel method for enhancing the display of common depth point seismic data. Common Depth point gathers of seismic data are processed to enhance the signal-to-noise ratio by reducing the averaging effects of lateral variations i ...

James H Wright, Richard C Heiser, John H Caldwell: Geophysical exploration using velocity picking from trial velocity function sorted time-coherency traces. Amoco Corporation, October 15, 1991: US05058079 (7 worldwide citation)

Time-coherency traces generated during velocity analysis are displayed in panels where each panel contains traces representing a single selected trial stacking velocity function and a plurality of common midpoint locations along a seismic line of exploration. Points selected from the panels, optimal ...

Theodore C Mead, James H Wright: Process for reclaiming used lubricating oil. Texaco, Jack H Park, Kenneth R Priem, Richard A Morgan, December 25, 1984: US04490245 (5 worldwide citation)

A used lubricating oil is reclaimed by vacuum distillation. The bottoms is vacuum pyrolyzed with limestone to form a virtually insoluble coked mass containing insoluble metal carbonates and free metal. This solid coked residuum is suitable for landfilling.

Theodore C Mead, James H Wright: Urea dewaxing of naphthene oils. Texaco, Jack H Park, Kenneth R Priem, Richard A Morgan, March 12, 1985: US04504376 (2 worldwide citation)

In an improved urea dewaxing process a urea/alcohol slurry chilled to 60.degree. F. to 65.degree. F. is added to a naphthenic distillate chilled to 60.degree. F. to 65.degree. F. to produce a refrigerator oil with improved low temperature properties.
