PATENT FOR SALE

Differential Method for Equitable Allocation of Hydrocarbon Component Yields using Phase Behavior Process Models

The patent describes a new robust technique for determining the proper allocation of hydrocarbons (e.g. Natural Gas Liquids) from Processing Facilities. It was developed to address the inequities that arise from allocations using all current methods. The difficulty in determining proper allocation to this point is that no standard method can accurately overcome even blatant allocation unfairness for some streams to the benefit of others.

If Your Innovation Effort isn't Working, Look at Who's on the Team

By Nathan Furr, Kyle Nel, Thomas Zoëga Ramsøy

An all-star team is making headway with a new initiative that could alter the future of the organization. Then, the results begin taking longer than anticipated to prove, and after too much time spent outside of their comfort zones, the team of high-achieving employees can’t seem to execute within the uncertain environment. How could such a capable team fail?
