Borehole Seismic Services
Our borehole seismic services offer application design, data processing, and interpretation for detailed reservoir description that improves production and field development. Our goal is improved reservoir description.
From simple time-depth data to imaging deep into the reservoir, we deliver the link between geophysics and geology. Our services enhance surface seismic resolution, enable depth correlation to logs, and image stratigraphic and structural anomalies. From a simple cased hole checkshot survey to multilevel 3D and 4D VSPs, we have acquisition solutions for every need.
Dedicated engineers make the difference on every job
We recognize every client is unique and every well is different. We offer the flexibility to meet every objective through highly adaptable downhole instruments. Dedicated seismic engineers with extensive experience are responsible for the acquisition of onshore, offshore, and transition-zone borehole seismic services.
Powerful surface systems and energy sources
On every survey, seismic specialists are equipped with precision downhole seismic sensors, energy sources, and latest digital data acquisition systems. We deliver superior data quality.
Surveys are conducted using single-level receivers and multilevel receivers in vertical, deviated, and horizontal wells. We efficiently tie surface seismic data to petrophysical parameters, improving reservoir characterization.
We have purpose-built, integrated borehole seismic data acquisition systems, including PC-based portable systems. These combine powerful surface recording computers and multiple three-component downhole receivers with integrated energy-source controllers and navigation systems. Our systems deliver the most accurate information in less time.
Borehole seismic services offer high-resolution data that enable 3D images. This improves vertical and lateral reservoir resolution compared with surface seismic data. Our digital data acquisition services reduce rig time and improve your production while reducing well and field-development risk.
Borehole and surface seismic interpretation
Our acquisition capability is enhanced by the CGGVeritas-Baker Hughes joint venture, VSFusion. This company offers the greatest concentration of experienced borehole geophysicists, leading software, and processing and analysis capabilities.
You can acquire wide-aperture 3D VSPs while recording 3D surface seismic surveys without interruption using our SeisXplorer™ service.
Our borehole seismic sources and source controllers quickly deploy from a rig or offset source vessel, reducing costly rig time.
Our borehole seismic acquisition services offer a complete range of purpose-built dedicated seismic logging systems.
Our borehole seismic deployment methods allow successful data acquisition for any wellbore—in any environment with any geometric complexity.
Our borehole seismic services downhole instruments offer detailed reservoir imaging data that enhance production and field development.
VSFusion—a joint venture between CGGVeritas and Baker Hughes—builds upon the two companies’ expertise in VSP processing services.
