Hostile wells: the borehole seismic challenge

William Wills discusses some of the basic exploration challenges faced with characterising deep reservoirs in such a high risk, high cost environment, and the requirements of downhole seismic tools to overcome such issues

The challenges of mapping small restricted sites

Carlo Peris and Tom Hiller describe an operation to perform bathymetric and topographic surveys to obtain accurate depth maps

Portuguese subsea services company launches with ROV deal

Rapid role-change during operations is a key feature where intelligent electronics offer a ‘plug and go’ simplicity

A new broadband solution takes to the water

A superior broadband marine seismic solution offers a new combination of leading equipment, unique acquisition techniques and patented de-ghosting and imaging technology to provide better subsurface images. Jo Firth reports

Deeper insight into the subsurface

The rising speed and lowering cost of processing power means that generating a complete synthetic seismic data set is now affordable for individual companies and many times cheaper than an actual seismic survey
