Borehole seismic data provides the critical depth and velocity
parameters needed to link surface seismic data with downhole log and well
Borehole seismic tools have evolved from single-component sensors to
modern seismic array tools. These modern tools, when combined with the latest
technology in seismic source quality, navigational positioning, and
computational abilities, can deliver in real time high-resolution borehole
seismic images that extend beyond the wellbore or into the interwell volume to
reduce risk in drilling and development decisions. This book provides a review
of the latest tools, technologies, and applications of borehole seismic
technology. A discussion of survey design and modeling is also provided.
Fundamentals of Borehole Seismic Technology is the second of a series of
Schlumberger reference books produced for current and future oilfield technical
Schlumberger customers may acquire complimentary single copies of this
book from their Schlumberger representative.
