QinetiQ Subsidiary Updates Seismic Data Tech; David Hill Comments

qinetiq-logoEbizA QinetiQ Group subsidiary has updated its wellbore sensing and imaging technology that geoscience customers use to acquire and analyze seismic data.

OptaSense’s new version of its distributed acoustic sensing – vertical seismic profiling technology works to capture images of wellbore using fiber-optics for producer and injector wells measurements, QinetiQ said Monday.

The company intends for the offering to help geophysicists view SEG-Y data (Society of Exploration Geophysicists), conduct data evaluation and measure and acquire recorded information while reducing image processing time.

David Hill, chief technology officer of OptaSense, said the technology covers the full length of wellbore with various channels for measurements.

“For example high temperature wells, in excess of 300 degrees Celsius and over 10,000 PSI, such as those used for steam injection, can now be imaged for the first time,” Hill adds.

The new version also helps customers reduce costs as DAS-VSP’s full wellbore coverage removes duplicate shoots.
