United States Oil and Gas Files Patent Pending for a Simple Fiber-Optic Seismometer

AUSTIN, Texas–(EMWNews)–United States Oil and Gas Corp. (Pink Sheets: USOG) is pleased to

announce it has a patent pending on A SIMPLE FIBER-OPTIC SEISMOMETER

FOR RUGGED ENVIRONMENTS that will dramatically reduce the cost of

seismic sensor arrays having the fidelity and reliability necessary for

permanent down-hole and seafloor installations. The advancement promises

to make big oil techniques for oilfield production management and

exploration techniques available to the middle market players.

USOG plans to revolutionize Green

oil and gas technologies with the smallest footprint. Most heavy

oil recovery schemes depend on formation feedback information to make

decisions about inputs and production rates to optimize the oil field.

Correct management of costly secondary recovery methods could double the

financial returns on these projects. Affordable sensors are the key to

bringing modern production techniques to the oil patch.

Offshore, a seismic sensor array has to be reliable enough to be

deployed once and not need maintenance. This invention transcends the

intrinsic limitation of existing sensing seismic sensing technology by

the elimination of physical connections to remote optical fibers in

addition to a non-electric solution. The simplicity of this new device

raises opportunities for seismic sensors that have lifetimes exceeding

ten years in deepwater applications.
