Recent advances in crosswell seismic technologies have lead to the successful development and release of a new downhole seismic source that imparts greater energy into the formation by sweeping frequencies in the range of 30-800 Hz. The result is, for the first time, a powerful, efficient and cost effective vibrator for use in the borehole allowing for enhanced seismic imaging between wells up to 2km apart. In addition, the patented design and operation of the source allows for both compressional and shear wave energy to be acquired simultaneously along with the flexibility of being able to acquire data in reverse vertical seismic profile configuration.
