Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DETECTING ACOUSTIC ACTIVITY IN A SUBSURFACE FORMATION
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE DÉTECTION D’ACTIVITÉ ACOUSTIQUE DANS UNE FORMATION SOUTERRAINE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of monitoring acoustic activity in a formation (14) from a wellbore includes positioning a flow manipulation device (120) into the wellbore, the flow manipulation device (120) defining a flow path through which fluid may- flow. Fluid is then pumped into the wellbore and through the manipulation device. A sensor (142) disposed near the manipulation device (120) is then coupled to the formation (14), the formation (14) is fractured with fluid, and acoustic events in the formation (14) are detected with the sensor (142).
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de surveillance de l’activité acoustique dans une formation (14) à partir d’un puits de forage, comportant l’étape consistant à positionner un dispositif (120) de manipulation d’écoulement dans le puits de forage, ledit dispositif (120) de manipulation d’écoulement définissant un passage d’écoulement à travers lequel un fluide peut circuler. Du fluide est alors pompé dans le puits de forage et à travers le dispositif de manipulation. Un capteur (142) disposé près du dispositif (120) de manipulation est alors couplé à la formation (14), la formation (14) est fracturée à l’aide du fluide et les événements acoustiques dans la formation (14) sont détectés à l’aide du capteur (142).
