Borehole Seismic data provides the critical depth and velocity parameters needed to link seismic data with downhole log and well data.
Borehole seismic tools have evolved from single component sensors to modern seismic arrays. 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 course provides a review of the latest tools, technologies, and applications of borehole seismic technology. A discussion of survery design and modeling is also included. This will provide an understanding of the applications of Borehole Seismic Data to Exploration, Reservoir Description, and Production.
