Global Hydraulic Fracturing Fluids Patent Database | 13219 Patents and patent applications – ResearchAndMarkets.com
DUBLIN – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – The database “Patent database on hydraulic fracturing fluids” has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.
This database contains 13,219 inventions in the form of patents and patent applications which have been registered in patent offices around the world mainly since 2001 and were found as a result of a deliberate search at the date of compilation of this database. data (April 2021). The technical solutions, disclosed in the patent documents which are included in the proposed database, reflect to a large extent the state of the art in the development and use of hydraulic fracturing fluids. The database also includes several documents published before 2001 and in 2021.
Each patent document in this database contains a list of conventional bibliographic indicators, including original title, English version of title, family size, date of application, date of publication, office patents, names of inventors and applicants, type of document (patent or application), number of claims, number of citations, IPC indices and base document number.
In addition, all documents are provided with additional markers – unified indicators that include: technological categories (indicate the applicability of technical solutions to one of the sectors of the energy industry, as indicated by the authors of the inventions) ; technological elements (indicators with a specific level of detail for the production process in a particular sector of the energy industry); problems (technical, economic, ecological and other problems declared by the authors in a patent document); type of technical solution (device, method, composition).
The database contains a number of derived indicators, including status of applicants, residence of applicants, group of unified indicators. Indicators such as patent pending period, significant patents, applicant’s share in the aggregated intellectual property register can be calculated based on the available data.
For the majority of patents and applications, rating points are calculated based on the aggregate of bibliographic and unified indicators and the resulting values are displayed in the database.
The aforementioned indicators make it possible to: perform a refined search of patent documents located in the database; form groups of document combinations according to specific criteria; quickly visualize the data collected by simple operations supported by professional tables. This is also aided by additional search options provided – by keywords in the titles of patent documents (Keyword) or by using a comprehensive list of IPC indicators assigned to patent family documents (Family IPC pool). To ensure the convenience of operations with the database, it also comes with additional features such as glossary, overview, filter manual and explanatory notes.
The database also includes a brief statistical analysis of the main parameters of patent documents published between 2001 and 2020, represented in the form of diagrams and tables, or lists of patents and applications composed on the basis of selected parameters. The statistical results provided are acquired exclusively from the database considered and illustrate its capabilities. In particular, the statistical analysis includes a breakdown of documents by publication dates, patent families, patent offices, residents and non-residents, and requesting countries.
Statistical analysis includes:
Individual IPC subgroups: 2007
Total of assigned IPC sub-groups: 45059
The main body of patent documents was registered between 2013 and 2019, with a peak in patenting activity in 2017. With rare exceptions, the USPTO (United States) patent office was annually the leader in terms of number of patents granted. However, in recent years, the maximum number of patent applications has been registered at CNIPA (CN).
The highest patenting activity of their inventions was demonstrated by residents of the United States with a share of over 60% of the total number of patents granted between 2001-2020. Other countries whose residents have obtained at least 100 patents include China, the Netherlands, France, Canada and Saudi Arabia.
The most popular IPC subgroup with a share of almost 9% was C09K8 / 68 – Compositions for drilling boreholes or wells; Compositions for the treatment of boreholes or wells, eg for completion or remediation operations, containing organic compounds. Compositions as a type of technical solution have been mentioned in 60% of inventions; different methods were mentioned much less often – in 35%.
A separate part of the statistical analysis is devoted to applicants for patent documents. It includes the lists of applicants separately for patents and applications, the breakdown of patent documents of applicants by office, by type of technical solution, by problem, by technological category, by IPC section.
The list of the 10 most productive applicants by number of patents includes:
Halliburton Energy Services, Inc. (United States)
Baker Hughes Incorporated (United States)
Schlumberger Group (Schlumberger Technology Corporation (United States), Schlumberger Technology BV (NL), Schlumberger Canada Limited (CA))
PetroChina Company Limited (CN)
Saudi Arabia Oil Company (SA)
Sinopec China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (CN)
Rhodia Opérations SAS (FR)
BJ Service Company (United States)
Clearwater International LLC (United States)
MI LLC (United States)
The final part of the analysis includes calculated data that helps expose the resulting patent trends and draw key conclusions. Diagrams such as the relationship between number of applicants and number of patents per year, relationship between number of unique applications and total number per year, new applicants per year, major new IPC subgroups and others, are presented here.
