Borehole seismic surveys help oil and gas companies reduce exploration and development risk and enhance field value. Advances in borehole seismic acquisition, in the form of a new, versatile downhole receiver array and innovative source-positioning system, help geophysicists acquire large amounts of high-quality data cost-effectively. Case studies demonstrate how borehole seismic surveys illuminate targets and hazards ahead of the bit, produce images while anchored inside drillpipe, pin-point small-scale structures for development-wellplanning, characterize reservoir fluid content and image in three dimensions.
