Improved logging efficiency at lower cost
The new heterodyne distributed vibration sensing (hDVS) distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) system is a technological breakthrough for borehole seismic applications, reducing acquisition time from the hours required for conventional seismic operations and vertical seismic profiles (VSPs) to just minutes.
Built-in efficiency: The system’s optical interrogator unit at surface is connected to any optical-fiber cable deployed in a well, from hybrid wireline logging cable to production tubing with fiber installed or optical fiber permanently cemented behind casing.
With every logging run or fiber installation an opportunity for hDVS DAS seismic data acquisition, the efficiency of borehole seismic operations is significantly improved at lower cost. No time is required for rigging up and down and deploying conventional borehole seismic tools because the system is simply connected to the fiber at surface and records seismic data in conjunction with other stationary logging services or on its own.
