||WO||WO/2014/060722 - FLOW CONTROL ASSEMBLY||24.04.2014||
||PCT/GB2013/052638||PETROWELL LIMITED||MURDOCH, Euan|
A flow control method and assembly for an oil or gas well comprises generating a pressure signature in the fluid in a bore of the well comprising a minimum rate of change of pressure, and transmitting the pressure signature to a control mechanism to trigger a change in the configuration of a flow control device in the bore in response to the detection of the pressure signature in the fluid. The flow control device can comprise a barrier, such as a flapper, sleeve, valve or similar. The pressure signature is transmitted via fluid flowing in the bore, typically being injected into the well, optionally during or before frac operations, via fluid being used for the frac operations. The control mechanism typically includes an RFID reader to receive RF signals from tags deployed in the fluid flowing in the bore.

||PCT/GB2013/052727||TYCO ELECTRONICS UK LTD||REED, Martyn|
A cable tie system for securing wire bundles (52) in channels (55) of a cable raceway (50). Each wire bundle is secured between upstanding elongate ties (16) of a tie member (10) secured in a channel by a securing member (14) extending through an aperture (56) in the channel floor. The ties (16) pass through aligned slots in a retainer (20) which can be pushed down to hold the wire bundle in place. Within the retainers (20) are resilient engaging members which engage corresponding formations inwardly facing surfaces of the tie strips which can be pulled out of such engagement to allow removal of the retainer. The cable tie systems are positioned at spaced intervals along the cable raceway.

||WO||WO/2014/060775 - A CHAIN||24.04.2014||
||PCT/GB2013/052729||RENOLD PLC||CHRISTMAS, Michael Charles|
A chain has inner and outer links pivotally interconnected by transverse pins. In a straight configuration the links are substantially aligned in a linear direction. At least one resilient elongate flexible member is threaded along at least part of the length of the chain between the pins in alternate directions so as to force adjacent links of the chain to articulate out of the straight configuration. A chain in this form may be proof loaded before service by applying a tensile load and the elongate flexible member may be removed. A chain assembly comprises a plurality of said chains running between first and second connection brackets.
