Quinn R Passey, Michele M Thomas, Kevin M Bohacs: Method for production of hydrocarbons from organic-rich rock. ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company, July 19, 2005: US06918444 (136 worldwide citation)

A method for accelerating the conversion of kerogen to hydrocarbons in a subterranean formation containing organic-rich rock that is located in the vicinity of reservoir-quality strata. Sufficient heat is generated in the reservoir-quality strata such that it heats the organic-rich rock in the subte ...

ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company, February 19, 2008: US07331385 (125 worldwide citation)

Methods are provided that include the steps of providing wells in a formation, establishing one or more fractures (12) in the formation, such that each fracture intersects at least one of the wells (16, 18), placing electrically conductive material in the fractures, and generating electric current t ...

ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company, ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company, May 20, 2014: US08729903 (1 worldwide citation)

Method for assessing hydrocarbon source rock potential of a subsurface region without well log information. The method uses surface electromagnetic (121) and seismic (122) survey data to obtain vertical profiles of resistivity and velocity (123), which are then analyzed in the same way as well log d ...

Somnath Sinha, Edward M Braun, Quinn R Passey, Sergio A Leonardi, Alexander C Wood III, Timothy E Zirkle, Ryan A Kudva: Capillary-based calibration standards for measurement of permeability. ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company, ExxonMobil Upstream Research Law Department, July 28, 2015: US09091622

A calibration standard or check plug provides calibration standards in the permeability range of 10-10,000 nanoDarcy. The check plug is of similar exterior dimensions to a core sample that would be used with existing permeameters. The check plug is constructed from an impermeable material that is in ...
