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.

The disclosure relates generally to a parallel computing framework designed to accelerate intensive kernel operations and address the complex physics in numerical reservoir simulations by effectively using the many-core computing platform. Specifically, this Many-core Advanced Parallel Simulation (MAPS) uses heuristics to decide the optimal hardware configurations and optimal software components for a given problems characteristics to efficiently design a model.

An embodiment of a method of assessing characteristics of a proposed offshore structure design includes: receiving input data from a user via a user interface, the input data including characteristics of a proposed design of an offshore structure; estimating, by a processor, a weight of the offshore structure and expected forces on the structure based on the input data; calculating allowable stresses and stability of the offshore structure based on the estimated weight and expected forces; estimating a cost of fabrication of the offshore structure based on the input data; estimating a cost of transportation and installation of the offshore structure based on the input data; calculating a total estimated cost of the offshore structure based on the cost of fabrication and the cost of transportation and assembly; and outputting the estimated weight, expected forces and total cost to the user via a display.

A method of performing notch compensation and a system to perform notch compensation for a first seismic streamer are described. The method includes disposing the first seismic streamer at a first depth, where the seismic streamer includes a first set of sensors to receive reflections resulting from a seismic source, the reflections indicating a notch at a frequency. The method also includes disposing a second seismic streamer at a second depth, the second depth being less than the first depth and the second seismic streamer including a second set of sensors to receive reflections resulting from the seismic source. The method further includes processing the reflections received by the first set of sensors and the second set of sensors together to derive the match filter, and applying the match filter to the reflections received by the first set of sensors of the first seismic streamer to compensate for the notch.

A method of forming a tension leg platform (TLP) includes arranging a top tension riser (TTR) support system at one or more top tension risers, positioning the one or more top tension risers in corresponding ones of one or more TTR guide members supported by the TTR support system, connecting the TTR support system to a first column and a to a second column, and arranging a platform between the first and second columns.
