Halliburton Company is an American multinational corporation, and one of the world's largest oil field services companies with operations in more than 80 countries. It owns hundreds of subsidiaries, affiliates, branches, brands, and divisions worldwide and employs approximately 100,000 people.The company has dual headquarters located in Houston and in Dubai, where Chairman and CEO David Lesar works and resides, "to focus company’s Eastern Hemisphere Growth." The company remains incorporated in the United States.Halliburton's major business segment is the Energy Services Group . ESG provides technical products and services for petroleum and natural gas exploration and production. Halliburton's former subsidiary, KBR, is a major construction company of refineries, oil fields, pipelines, and chemical plants. Halliburton announced on April 5, 2007 that it had sold the division and severed its corporate relationship with KBR, which had been its contracting, engineering and construction unit as a part of the company.The company has been involved in numerous controversies, including the Deepwater Horizon explosion, for which it agreed to settle outstanding legal claims against it by paying litigants $1.1 billion.As of August 1, 2014 Jeff Miller was promoted to President of Halliburton reporting directly to Dave Lesar.On November 17, 2014 Halliburton and Baker Hughes jointly announced a definitive agreement under which Halliburton will, subject to the conditions set forth in the agreement, acquire Baker Hughes in a stock and cash transaction valued at $34.6 billion. A press release made available on the former's website, as at December 11, 2014 detailed the restructuring in the integration to follow. Wikipedia.

In accordance with some embodiments of the present disclosure, a method for vibration control for a wellbore logging tool is disclosed. The method may include measuring an initial output signal of the wellbore logging tool. Additionally, the method may include generating a first braking signal based on the initial output signal of the wellbore logging tool. The method may further include transmitting the first braking signal to the wellbore logging tool. The first braking signal may be designed to dampen the vibration of the wellbore logging tool.

A method includes introducing a pipe inspection tool into a first pipe positioned within a wellbore and further positioned within at least a second pipe. The pipe inspection tool includes an electromagnetic sensor having a coil antenna that includes a coil winding extending axially along at least a portion of the electromagnetic sensor. An excitation signal is transmitted between a first terminal and a second terminal of the coil antenna. A first response signal is measured between a third terminal and a fourth terminal of the coil antenna, wherein at least one of the third and fourth terminals is different from the first and second terminals. The first response signal is then processed to determine a characteristic of the first pipe.

In accordance with some embodiments of the present disclosure a method of vibration control for a wellbore logging tool is disclosed. The method may include estimating one or more of an estimated position, an estimated velocity, and an estimated acceleration of the wellbore logging tool after the drive signal has been sent to the wellbore logging tool. The method may include generating an active dampening braking signal based, at least in part, on one or more of the estimated position, the estimated velocity, and the estimated acceleration of the wellbore logging tool.


Patent

A downhole well fluid sensing device is disclosed for determining thermal conductivity of a formation fluid produced by a sampled subterranean well, the sensor package having an annulus shaped, elongate body defining a cylindrical fluid sampling space, the elongate body and the sampling space having a common longitudinal center axis. The elongate body has a fluid entrance port that provides well fluid ingress into the fluid sampling space and a fluid exit port that provides well fluid egress out of the fluid sampling space. A heat source is coupled to the elongate body and located along a portion of the fluid path, and the heat source inputs heat into sampled well fluid. Finally, temperature sensing devices located between the fluid entrance port and fluid exit port measure heat conducted to the sampled well fluid, wherein each of the temperature sensing devices is radially spaced from the heat source.

An electromagnetic sensor for a pipe inspection tool includes a first coil antenna having a wire wrapped about a first core in a first direction, and a second coil antenna axially offset from the first coil and the wire wrapped about a second core in a second direction. A power source is coupled to the wire such that, when excited by the power source, the first coil antenna generates a first magnetic field in a first polar orientation and the second coil antenna generates a second magnetic field in a second polar orientation opposite the first polar orientation.

In some embodiments, an apparatus (200) includes a tubular to operate downhole. The tubular has a longitudinal axis and has a cutout (210N) that has a direction that is other than 90 degrees to the longitudinal axis of the tubular. The apparatus also includes an antenna (202A) positioned in the cutout of the tubular. The antenna is to perform at least one of a transmission or reception of an electromagnetic signal that has a path that is to traverse a subsurface formation.


Patent

A completion system and method for intelligent control of multilateral wells. A completion deflector defines a hollow interior fluidly coupled with a uphole tubing and downhole main completion strings. Hydraulic, electric, and/or fiber-optic communication line segments extend between the uphole end and downhole end of the completion deflector for providing power, control or communications between the surface and production zones associated with the main wellbore. The communication line segments are located outside the completion deflector interior and may be located within longitudinal grooves formed along the exterior wall surface of the completion deflector. A self-guided, wet-matable connector is provided at the uphole end, which connects the both interior flow path and communication lines, and which may allow connection at any relative radial orientation. The uphole end of the completion deflector has an inclined upper surface for deflecting various tools and strings into a lateral wellbore.

A completion system and method for intelligent control of multilateral wells. A wye-shaped junction fitting defines a hollow interior that is fluidly coupled with the uphole tubing string and both downhole main and lateral completion strings. Hydraulic, electric, and/or fiber-optic communication line segments extend between the uphole end and both downhole ends of the junction fitting for providing power, control or communications between the surface and all production zones. The communication line segments are located outside the junction fitting interior and may be located within longitudinal grooves formed along the exterior wall surface of the junction fitting. Stabable, wet-matable connectors may be provided at each end of the junction fitting, which connect the both interior flow paths and communication lines, and which may allow connection at any relative radial orientation.
