In 2008 the Optowave fibre-optic seismic sensor cable was trenched at the StatoilHydro-operated Snorre field with the aim of achieving insight into installation, data acquisition and monitoring procedures. The Snorre pilot demonstrated ‘real time' data transfer and quality control - the fundamental requirement for reservoir monitoring ‘on demand'.
Part I: The Drive For Better Bandwidth And Resolution
Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road. One such technology is broadband seismic. Want to be part of the steamroller or the road? In a series of articles, we give you an introduction to what broadband seismic has to offer.
Of the 31,900 species of fish living today we know that more than 1,000 make sounds, ranging in frequency from 50 to 8,000 Hz. For most fishes, the sonic mechanism is a muscle that vibrates its swim bladder not unlike our vocal cord. For many other species, the sonic mechanism remains a mystery.
