What Is Cross - Hole Seismic?
What Is The Cross - Hole Seismic Used For?
Cross-hole Seismic (CHS) is used for a variety of purposes in the oil and gas industry, mining, and geothermal drilling such as:
Cross-hole Seismic can be used in mining drilling to identify the presence of mineral deposits and in geothermal drilling to identify the presence of hot water or steam.
Cross-hole Seismic can be used to monitor the changes of rock and fluid properties with time, to track the production of oil and gas and to identify the presence of changes in the reservoir that may affect the production.
Shallow seismic surveys can be used in exploration of shallow mineral, geothermal and geotechnical resources, and also in civil construction projects such as highway and railway projects, and in the study of natural hazards such as sinkholes.
How Does Cross - Hole Seismic Different From
Shallow Seismic Survey?
Cross-hole Seismic is used for deeper subsurface imaging, such as identifying rock formations, fractures, and other subsurface features at depth.
Cross-hole Seismic involves using two or more boreholes, in which a source of seismic energy is activated in one borehole and the resulting seismic waves are recorded in the other.
Cross-hole Seismic provides images of the deeper subsurface. It also provides high-resolution images of the subsurface which allows for a better understanding of subsurface features at depth.
