GEOREC-S - Vertical Seismic Profile tool

Click to download the datasheet GEOREC-S.pdf


VSP (Vertical Seismic Profile) is the main link between time-based surface seismic imaging and depth/based well logs. It provides a high-resolution image of the structure in the vicinity of the instrumented well. One or several seismic sources on the surface are fired and recorded by the downhole receivers (GEOREC-S) positioned at different depth levels.The downhole receivers allow recording in lower noise conditions as well as recording direct arrivals and recording higher frequencies (->higher resolution) than the equivalent surface tools. The GEOREC-S is a slim downhole digital tool designed for seismic acquisition in high temperature conditions. Each GEOREC-S single level includes 3 fixed accelerometers, and have its own power supply and telemetry. Up to 48 GEOREC-S levels can be successively connected with a 7 conductors standard cable. Optionally, the accelerometers can be replaced by geophones.
