WO/2015/057657 HYDRAULIC BOREHOLE MINING SYSTEM AND METHOD||WO||23.04.2015|
||PCT/US2014/060415||ISLANDER LLC||KINLEY, Colin, B.|
A hydraulic borehole mining system controlled and operated above-ground includes a high-pressure cutting nozzle that is delivered to an underground resource body through a relatively small diameter borehole. A series of water and air fluid streams at various pressures are delivered to the resource body, and the target resource is disaggregated and/or fluidized and conveyed back to surface via the hydraulic borehole mining pipe which serves as the conveyor of the system. The mining pipe is used to transport a high-pressure stream of combined air and water fluids that have been directed and aligned into laminar flow to a focused water jet cutting head. The central bore of the mining pipe brings the slurrified resource to the surface. The mining pipe transports the slurry via hydraulic airlift, fluid eduction or both.

This disclosure relates to an improved system and method for fracturing a well. In one embodiment, the system can comprise a base pipe (100) comprising an insert port (101) capable of housing a stop ball partially within the chamber of it, and a sliding sleeve (200). The sliding sleeve can comprise a first sleeve (202) with an in inner surface. That inner surface can comprise a void. The first sleeve can be maneuverable into two positions. In the first position, the void can rest on a surface of the base pipe not comprising an insert port. Such positioning can prevent a stop ball (502) from exiting the chamber of the base pipe. In the second position, the void can rest over an insert port. Such positioning can allow the stop ball to the chamber of said base pipe and to enter the void.

WO/2015/037084 VEHICLE MANAGEMENT CONTROL SYSTEM||WO||19.03.2015|
||PCT/JP2013/074564||HITACHI CONSTRUCTION MACHINERY CO., LTD.||HAMADA Tomoyuki|
The present invention provides an unmanned travelling vehicle management control system that can realize travel in which inter-vehicle distance is maintained and there is no interference between vehicles. The vehicle management control system is provided with the following: onboard control devices mounted in a plurality of vehicles; a management control device that divides travel routes for the plurality of vehicles into a plurality of sectors and performs obstruction control that allocates to the vehicles, as allowed travel sectors, travelable sectors in which there is no mutual overlap between the plurality of vehicles; and a communication means that communicates between the management control device and the onboard control devices. The onboard control devices determine an travel allowance request start distance as a distance that is longer than the distance within which an own vehicle can stop from the current speed, and when the remaining sector length for the allowed travel sector in the direction of travel of the own vehicle becomes less than the travel allowance request start distance, the onboard control devices repeatedly send travel allowance requests and own vehicle current position information to the management control device until the next travel allowance is obtained.

||PCT/JP2013/073396||KOMATSU LTD.||SUGIHARA, Motohide|
This management system for mining machinery includes a location-information acquisition unit, a storage unit, and a determination unit. The location-information acquisition unit, which is installed in mining machinery that works in a mine, obtains location information regarding the location of said mining machinery. The storage unit stores route information that includes the following: a plurality of nodes; and links that connect adjacent nodes to each other. Said nodes exist at prescribed intervals along a first route that the mining machinery takes when moving from a prescribed first location to a second location at which loads are loaded and then to a third location at which said loads are unloaded. On the basis of, at least, said route information and a location-information set obtained from a plurality of pieces of location information acquired by the location-information acquisition unit while the mining machinery is in operation, the determination unit determines whether or not a second route corresponding to said location-information set is the same as the aforementioned first route.
