The combination of the hDVS/DAS technology and the high-strength hybrid heptacable technology is now enabling to record borehole seismic data while formation sampling operation called the “borehole seismic while sampling” method, which is the new way to minimize the rig time and the costs. This setup allows us to record borehole seismic data without adding dedicated operation time or rig time, which would be called “zero operation time borehole seismic acquisition”.
