Borehole Seismic Acquisition

Real-time seismic without geophones

Achieving higher rates of return begins with a clear understanding of the reservoir. OptaSense borehole seismic acquisition services provide repeatable, high resolution imaging of the reservoir in real time, without the need for well intervention.
Our services include the acquisition of 2D, 3D and 4D vertical seismic profiling (VSP) and microseismic data. Through the use of Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), we provide accurate measurements of frequency, phase and amplitude along the entire length of the wellbore.

OptaSense technology alleviates common restrictions encountered with conventional downhole tools, including production downtime, wellbore integrity risk and restricted wellbore access. Data acquisition can be performed on any wellbore, even under extreme conditions such as high temperature, high pressure, or highly deviated wells.

OptaSense DAS technology can be permanently installed behind casing, semi-permanently installed on the production string or temporarily installed using wireline or coiled tubing. After installing the DAS fiber, there is no need for further wellbore interventions.

Even in deviated or restricted wellbores, where conventional geophones are unfeasible, OptaSense acquisition services offer quality, repeat borehole seismic measurements, including simultaneous and time-lapse surveys, in a cost effective manner for the life of your asset without any loss of production from your wells.

Did you know

By permanently installing fiber behind the casing, OptaSense Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing (DFOS) allows you to acquire borehole seismic data, profile hydraulic fractures and monitor production flow in real time, for the life of your asset.

With our DAS-based VSP you can perform pre and post frac time-lapse surveys, without risking production downtime, wellbore integrity or higher acquisition costs.
