VSI Versatile Seismic Imager

Analysis of borehole seismic data collected during the exploration or appraisal process provides accurate velocity, position, and anisotropy information for analyzing, enhancing, and calibrating surface seismic data. Our multidisciplinary interpretation experts work with you as needed to extend the resulting high-resolution reservoir description away from the wellbore to locate reservoir sweet spots, fractures, and compartments. Fast-track borehole seismic images are particularly useful for designing sidetrack or horizontal wellbores. An additional application is microseismic interpretation with real-time monitoring to improve fracturing results and lead to better well production. Cross-well seismic data also delivers high-resolution imaging to support more effective field development.
