ConocoPhillips Co. is an American multinational energy corporation with its headquarters located in the Energy Corridor district of Houston, Texas in the United States. It is the world's largest independent pure-play exploration and production company and is a Fortune 500 company. ConocoPhillips was created through the merger of American oil companies Conoco Inc. and Phillips Petroleum Co. on August 30, 2002. In 2012, ConocoPhillips' spun off its downstream assets as a new, and separate company, Phillips 66. Wikipedia.

ConocoPhillips | Date: 2016-08-23

Systems and methods utilize heated waste flue gas to treat water. The heated waste flue gas, which may come from a steam generator, bubbles through untreated water to vaporize the untreated water and separate out solids and other contaminants before subsequent condensing. The steam generator may receive resulting treated water to produce steam for injection.


Patent
ConocoPhillips | Date: 2016-08-23

Systems and methods utilize heated waste flue gas to indirectly heat untreated water. The heated waste flue gas, which may come from a steam generator, passes through one or more heating coils in a vessel to vaporize untreated water and separate out solids and other contaminants before subsequent condensing. The steam generator may receive resulting treated water to produce steam for injection.

A method of removing paraffin deposits from downhole tubing, pumps and valves is provided using hot water and recycling the hot water to allow continual intermittent cleaning throughout the lifespan of the well.


Patent
ConocoPhillips | Date: 2016-09-23

The present disclosure relates to a particularly effective well configuration that can be used for SAGD and other steam based oil recovery methods. Fishbone multilateral wells are combined with SAGD, effectively expanding steam coverage, but the fishbones are preheated to mitigate plugging problems, with e.g., resistive heating, EM heating or chemical heating.


Patent
ConocoPhillips | Date: 2016-08-25

This disclosure describes a method for calculating the horizontal stresses that integrate both frictional equilibrium and uniaxial elasticity assumptions. The results are more accurate than either of the assumptions.


Patent
ConocoPhillips | Date: 2016-09-26

Disclosed are methods of marine 3D seismic data acquisition that do not require compensation for winds and currents.


Patent
ConocoPhillips | Date: 2016-08-31

Methods of designing seismic survey and acquisition of seismic data with reduced noise using equally or optimally irregularly spaced sources or receivers are described. Specifically, prime number ratios for the station to line spacing is used to prevent harmonic leakage and other noise contaminations in the acquired seismic data.


Patent
ConocoPhillips | Date: 2016-06-17

Method of estimating azimuthal amplitude gradient is disclosed. This method uses a correlation of seismic attributes within a sliding volume of data to obtain azimuthal gradient.


Patent
ConocoPhillips | Date: 2016-07-20

Disclosed are methods of characterizing kerogen and its hydrocarbon generation potential using NMR as the primary analytical tool, and using such data to derive the kinetics of hydrocarbon generation and alteration, thus predicting the hydrocarbon potential of source rock in geological setting, which can then be used in petroleum exploration and production.


Patent
ConocoPhillips | Date: 2016-09-13

Methods for developing equation-of-states (EOS) composition models for predicting petroleum reservoir fluid behavior and understanding fluid heterogeneity in unconventional shale plays are described. In particular, limited geochemical data from samples taken from the reservoir of interested are utilized to build and tune the EOS model and improve predictions. Real-time applications are also described.
