Craig S Calvert, Thomas A Jones: Process for constructing three-dimensional geologic models having adjustable geologic interfaces. ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company, Keith A Bell, November 12, 2002: US06480790 (100 worldwide citation)

A process for constructing a three-dimensional geologic model of a subsurface earth volume in which the positions of geologic interfaces within the model are adjusted as the model is being constructed. The resulting geologic model should be consistent with all available geologic and geophysical info ...

Lirio Quintero, Thomas A Jones, David E Clark, Allen D Gabrysch, Ana Forgiarini, Jean Louis Salager: Single phase microemulsions and in situ microemulsions for cleaning formation damage. Baker Hughes Incorporated, Mossman Kumar & Tyler PC, January 10, 2012: US08091646 (19 worldwide citation)

Single phase microemulsions (SPMEs) and in situ-formed microemulsions may be used to clean up and remove non-polar materials from reservoir production zones of oil and gas wells. This clean up occurs by solubilization of the non-polar material into the microemulsion when the treatment fluid contacts ...
