Major Drilling and Downhole Solutions Provider Announces Settlement of Intellectual Property Lawsuit

Oct 25, 2020

By Varel International Energy Services Varel International Energy Services, a long-standing provider of drilling and downhole solutions, today announced their settled litigation with Taurex Drill Bits, including claims of intellectual property infringement for specific drill bit technology. “We are pleased to have this settlement complete as we continue to preserve the proprietary value our people have worked so hard to protect. We can now redirect more necessary attention towards further serving our customers with the industry-leading SlipStream™ drill bit platform. We are confident that customers and business partners will find this resolved dispute helpful when assessing future needs for drill out and milling operations. It will also allow the companies to focus on their individual strengths and allow fair competition in the marketplace,” said Varel CEO, Derek Nixon. The litigation between Varel and Taurex began on May 1, 2020 upon a lawsuit filed for patent infringement based on Taurex’s Bore Haug Drill Bit. Varel sued Taurex in the Southern District of Texas federal court as well as the International Trade Commission (ITC proceeding filed on June 4, 2020). Varel’s U.S. Patent No. 10,538,970 was asserted as the basis for the proceedings. On September 22, 2020, Varel and Taurex reached a business resolution and settled the disputes asserting infringement of Varel’s U.S. Patent No. 10,538,970 intellectual property. Ken Ripple, Patent Manager of Varel, went on to state, “Varel is an innovative company with a proud history of vigorously enforcing its intellectual property, and this case was no different. This particular resolution enables both respective companies to serve their customers in a fair and prudent manner.”  This settlement comes on the heels of various new technology developments and forthcoming commercial launches within the Varel drilling and downhole solutions portfolio.

Seniton Technologyorporation

Seniton Technologyorporation is a company that received a SBIR Phase I grant for a project entitled: Developing an Ultra Energy Efficient Sensor Node Using RFID Technology. Their research project proposes to develop an ultra-energy efficient wireless sensor node using RFID technology. By providing ultra energy efficiency and hence extended network life time, the proposed solution can significantly reduce recurring maintenance cost due to replacing/recharging batteries and interruption of normal operation for networks with long deployment lifetime. The outcome of the proposed tasks is a prototype of a wireless sensor platform that will provide ultra-energy efficiency, at least 5-10 times improvement as compared to existing solutions. The approach is to uniquely combine wireless sensor platform with radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. In contrast to conventional designs where synchronized, periodic sleep/wakeup of sensor nodes are used as the dominant strategy for energy conservation, we employ an innovative asynchronous communication architecture, where sensor nodes are allowed to independently transmit without requiring any synchronization. The approach is fundamentally different from existing design paradigms; the innovative asynchronous communication architecture allows a sensor node to directly write data into a special, reactive module residing on the receiving node while its main platform is asleep. In this way, each individual sensor can schedule its own transmission without demanding any network-wide or local synchronization, thus resulting in a store-and-forward, asynchronous communication pattern in the network. Owing to the low duty cycle of a sensor node, the proposed asynchronous architecture will liberate the network from collisions and idle listening by fully exploiting time as one dimension of resource. The result is a design achieving order of magnitude improvement in energy efficiency. The extension of a wireless sensor network's life time will have significant commercial potential in saving recurring maintenance cost due to replacing/recharging batteries and disruption of normal operation for a technology with exploding market. Moreover, the technology can enable a plethora of applications, infeasible under existing designs, which demand extremely large scale sensor networks and ultra energy efficiency for long term operation. These include habitat, oceanic and planetary monitoring and surveillance of infrastructures. Furthermore, this integrative, and cutting edge project demands a systematic and synergistic approach that combines wireless networking, embedded system design, and lower power radio, and should also promote the fusion of knowledge in various domains by focusing on a mutual and challenging objective.
