IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing | Year: 2010

Compressive sensing (CS) is an emerging field based on the revelation that a small collection of linear projections of a sparse signal contains enough information for stable, sub-Nyquist signal acquisition. When a statistical characterization of the signal is available, Bayesian inference can complement conventional CS methods based on linear programming or greedy algorithms. We perform asymptotically optimal Bayesian inference using belief propagation (BP) decoding, which represents the CS encoding matrix as a graphical model. Fast computation is obtained by reducing the size of the graphical model with sparse encoding matrices. To decode a length-N signal containing K large coefficients, our CS-BP decoding algorithm uses O(K log(N)) measurements and O(N log 2(N)) computation. Finally, although we focus on a two-state mixture Gaussian model, CS-BP is easily adapted to other signal models. © 2009 IEEE.

Inverse Problems | Year: 2014

We develop an ultrawideband inverse scattering technique for reconstructing continuous random media on the basis of Bayesian compressive sensing. In addition to providing maximum a posteriori estimates of the unknown weights, Bayesian inversion provides an estimate of the confidence level of the solution, as well as a systematic approach for optimizing subsequent measurement(s) to maximize information gain. We impose sparsity priors directly on spatial harmonics to exploit the spatial correlation exhibited by continuous media and then efficiently solve for their posterior probability density functions by using a fast relevance vector machine. We linearize the problem by using the first-order Born approximation, which enables us to combine, in a single inversion, measurements from multiple transmitters and ultrawideband frequencies. To extend the method to high-contrast media, we also introduce a Bayesian compressive sensing distorted-Born iterative approach. Further, we illustrate the use of time-reversal strategies to adaptively focus the inversion effort onto subdomains of interest and hence reduce the overall inversion cost. The proposed techniques are applied to a number of scenarios including crosshole and borehole sensing. © 2014 IOP Publishing Ltd.

SPE Drilling and Completion | Year: 2011

Viscoelastic-surfactant (VES) systems are the preferred gelling and viscosity-generating agents for fluids used in the production zone because of their nondamaging effects on the reservoir. Polymer gels have relatively higher rock-retention values and can often damage the invaded zone, in most cases requiring acid treatment to remove. In contrast, VES systems behave as "equilibrium" or "living" polymers, and their viscosity can be reduced by contact with the produced hydrocarbons or with an internal breaker. This can eliminate the need for remedial treatments, greatly reducing operating cost/time and damage to the formation. Cationic, anionic, and cationic/anionic VES systems have historically demonstrated limitations in high-density brines. Electrostatic screening generally reduces the viscosity or causes phase separation. Many surfactants generally have low salt tolerance and minimal to zero tolerance of divalent brines. Most surfactants exhibit a dramatic decrease in viscosity after a certain concentration of salt is reached and even phase separation in some cases. A novel method has been developed to stabilize different VES packages in high-density completion brines. By controlling the curvature of surfactant aggregates using low-molecular-weight surfactant polymers, nanometer-scale manipulation of the phase behavior is achieved. We have viscosified mono- and divalent high- density brines using cationic, anionic, and catanionic mixtures that were previously considered ineffective. This unlocks a vast range of surfactants for use in high-density completion brines,fracturing/stimulation/acidizing fluids, and sand-control operations. This paper details the laboratory work performed to develop VES packages for fluids ranging from fresh water to completion brines. Extensive rheology experiments have been run on several fluids, showing the viscoelasticity of these systems. The self- breaking nature of VES systems when in contact with hydrocarbons or exposed to a built-in breaker has also been demonstrated by laboratory experiment.
