Borehole seismic surveys provide high-resolution, high-fidelity depth and velocity data for generating images and calibrating surface seismic data and models. LWD acquisition with real-time processing significantly reduces uncertainty ahead of the bit by up to several thousand feet.
Key to the high data quality is the evolution from single-component sensors to Q-Technology point-receiver seismic hardware and software. Deploying these receivers in combination with improved sources and expert multidisciplinary processing and interpretation delivers borehole seismic images and vertical seismic profiles (VSPs) at near- and cross-well scales that illuminate key reservoir features such as compartmentalization, faults, and imaging below salt.
Acquire superior-resolution seismic data and images with new distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) system or employ the proven Q-Borehole integrated borehole seismic system, with land acquisition facilitated by the highway-legal, offroad-mobile Q-Borehole Explorer truck vibrator.
Employ look-ahead technology with seismicVISION seismic-while-drilling service to deliver time-depth-velocity information in real time without disrupting drilling operations.
Work closely with Schlumberger petrotechnical teams to integrate geophysical data and interpretations into field and reservoir models that lead to better reservoir characterization, enhanced completions and drilling results, and better production decision.
