Passive Seismic and Acquisition of Other Waves
The Technology of Passive Differential Spectroscopy has started to attract the attention of scientists in 1994 for detection and monitoring of hydrocarbon deposits in the history of the petroleum Industry. This technology is based on the principles of non linear behavior of wave characteristics affected by elements existing in rock and formation.
Hydrocarbons in the pore system of reservoirs can be detected as a characteristic deformation of the various waves that exist naturally in omnipresent spectra such as radio frequency waves, earth magnetics and acoustic waves. These signals are recorded at the surface with ultra-high sensitive device.
The signals are analyzed to produce a unique spectral signature which is matched with the impact of sample elemental material under investigation. Historically, passive seismic has been applied more than 100 surveys in a variety of geological and environmental regions.
Our device can filter the depth interval which provides the locations of the hydrocarbon reservoir with the greatest chance of success and drastically reduces the risk of drilling dry wells. This technology can be integrated into the existing field and seismic data for a better understanding of a potential hydrocarbon accumulation and calculate the volume accurately. It is also used for delineation and development of hydrocarbon pools, identification of water contacts and flood fronts for development of a discovered oil field.
In a producing field, our technology is a unique monitoring tool because it can detect the presence of hydrocarbons, water coning areas and by pass zones. In abandoned fields or in non-commercial fields, this technology can identify the volume of remaining oil. This is particularly useful in determining the present oil content in old and depleted fields.
