Acoustic scanning platform
Gain acoustic insight to anisotropy and formation geomechanics in wells at any angle.
The DSI dipole shear sonic imager combines monopole and dipole sonic acquisition capabilities for the reliable acoustic measurement of compressional, shear, and Stoneley slownesses.
The transmitter section contains a piezoelectric monopole transmitter and two electrodynamic dipole transmitters perpendicular to each other. An electric pulse at sonic frequencies is applied to the monopole transmitter to excite compressional- and shear-wave propagation in the formation. For Stoneley wave acquisition a specific low-frequency pulse is used. The dipole transmitters are also driven at low frequency to excite the flexural wave around the borehole.
We work with you to apply advanced interpretation techniques and workflows to the combined monopole and dipole acquisition by the DSI dipole shear sonic imager.
Advanced sonic waveform processing and analysis provide critical information for completion optimization, sanding prediction, wellbore stability studies, and mechanical earth models. Shear wave splitting and orientation of the fast shear azimuth guide lateral well placement, and Stoneley analysis can indicate and characterize fractures as well as reveal formation mobility.
