Title (EN) SINGLE WELL SYSTEM FOR MAPPING SOURCES OF ACOUSTIC ENERGY
(FR) SYSTEME A PUITS UNIQUE POUR LA LOCALISATION DE SOURCES D'ENERGIE ACOUSTIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Apparatus (30) and method for determining the location (20) of the source of seismic energy around a well (10) are provided. Multiple seismic receivers (32, 34), each receiver having orthogonal seismic sensors, are axially spaced on a tool (30) which is capable of sending real-time seismic signals to the surface. A method for calculating the source location (20) with respect to the receivers (32, 34) is also provided.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif (30) et un procédé permettant de déterminer l'emplacement (20) d'une source d'énergie sismique autour d'un puits (10). Plusieurs récepteurs sismiques (32, 34), dotés chacun de capteurs sismiques orthogonaux, sont espacés axialement sur un instrument (30) capable d'émettre des signaux sismiques en temps réel vers la surface. L'invention concerne également un procédé de détermination de l'emplacement de la source (20) par rapport aux récepteurs sismiques (32, 34).
