SYNTHESIS GAS. Analysis of Inventions

17.09.2022

Syngas is one of the key resources for the production of synthetic fuels. Hydrogen, which is a part of syngas is widely used in oil refining and ammonia production. One of the main advantages of syngas is that it can be produced from almost any hydrocarbon or organic material, including natural gas, oil, coal, biomass and even...

FLOATING SOLAR PANELS WITH TRACKING SYSTEM. Recent Patents

08.09.2022

Presently, the global market for floating solar panels is estimated to be a few dozens of millions of US dollars. At the same time, only 10-15% of floating stations are equipped with active solar tracking systems. Nevertheless, many experts expect a significant growth in this segment of market in the next decade, predominantly...

Directional Drilling. Analysis of Inventions

29.08.2022

Hydrocarbons in low-permeable shale rocks, unlike oil and gas-rich natural reservoirs, are located on a much larger area and, lacking mobility, are clogged in relatively small cavities. To ensure the extraction of hydrocarbons from such rocks, at least two additional measures are required: to increase the contact area of...

Offshore wind turbines. Maintenance, repair, replacement. Recent Patents

22.08.2022

One of most important problems of wind energy is the relatively low capacity factor, which in real practice of wind turbines rarely exceeds 30%. As a result, huge material-intensive and expensive structures of wind turbines sit idle for a considerable time without generating electricity, reducing the investment attractiveness...

Steam Injection for unconventional oil production. Analysis of Inventions

06.08.2022

Steam injection is one of the most common and widely-applied methods of thermal stimulation of high-viscosity and high-density oil reservoirs causing a significant reduction in the viscosity of the heavy oils. There are three major types of steam injection techniques – SAGD (Steam Assisted gravity drainage), CSS (Cyclic Steam...

WIND ENERGY. Offshore Wind Turbine. Invention analysis

02.07.2022

One of the main barriers to the development of wind energy is its low capacity factor, which in real practice rarely exceeds 30%. The leading trends in the development of wind energy are the increase in the size of wind turbines and construction of wind farms in offshore zones, which allows the maximum capacity factor to be...

Solar Trackers. Analysis of Inventions

20.06.2022

One of the options to substantially increase the efficiency of solar technologies is the implementation of trackers, devices that follow the solar position and correspondingly orient photovoltaic panels or mirror reflectors. There is a multi-level classification of trackers based on their functional capabilities. First of all,...

CONCENTRATED SOLAR POWER. Energy Storage. Invention analysis

05.06.2022

Energy storage technologies constitute one of the most important domains of the modern energy industry. The key problem holding back the development of renewable energy is the variability in operation of solar and wind power plants due to the natural characteristics of these resources. The development and improvement of...

UNCONVETIONAL OIL PRODUCTION. Gas injection or water flooding. Invention analysis

09.05.2022

Petroleum fuel still remains the main energy source for an extensive list of consumers' sectors, primarily including transport and heating, but in a number of countries – also electric energy production. Despite the fact that the share of renewable energy sources in overall end-use energy consumption keeps growing steadily, in...

UNCONVETIONAL OIL PRODUCTION. Chemical Stimulation. Invention analysis

18.04.2022

In the structure of final global primary energy consumption, oil products lead by a significant margin, with the total final consumption of oil exceeding 30%. The uniqueness of raw materials in the form of fossil fuels, in addition to having the physical and chemical properties optimal for the energy sector, lies in the...
