Noise in Completions Amelioration for Permanent Seismic Sensors

Funded under: FP5-EESD

Abstract

Borehole seismic monitoring, using permanently deployed borehole sensor arrays, can provide continuous time-lapse information on reservoir processes that will improve reservoir knowledge and management. However a major barrier to the permanent deployment of seismic sensors has been the problem of flow induced acoustic noise in well completions. The objective of this project has been the fundamental physical/mechanical understanding of acoustic noise generation and transmission in flowing wells, enabling the development of practical solutions to the problem of permanent seismic sensor deployment in active hydrocarbon wells.
