READ Group of Companies
As a passionate service company and technology developer with a global footprint, READ provides seismic services for exploration, reservoir evaluation and well construction (permanent monitoring) throughout reservoir life. READ’s core expertise is in seismic services (data acquisition and data processing).
Give your reservoir illumination a boost with HybridVSPTM , a patented combination of a long three-component (3C) digital receiver array, with a near-continuous fiber-optical Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) antenna, in addition to a custom wireline and proprietary noise-reduction methods. We acquire full well coverage 3DVSPs that give results previously unseen in VSP surveying and in less acquisition time. This gives birth to a new age in borehole seismic with a full 3D cube giving up to three times the coverage at the target, with increased resolution.
Increase your understanding of reservoir performance with PerForMTM, a patented and commercial permanent seismic system capable of carrying 100's of sensors in to a well using production or injection tubing. Using a system that decouples the 3C sensors from the tubing and on to the casing, PerForMTM can be used for passive seismic monitoring and time lapse VSP surveying. Generate large time lapse volumes and monitor fluid front movement for maximized reservoir drainage and high resolution imaging. Drill less wells by increasing field productivity and strategic well placement during the field development phase.
Convert any suitable offshore supply vessel in to a powerful seismic source boat overnight. Large VSP surveys require a large seismic source. Safe and efficient operations are our priority and the BigDipperTM source minizes rig time and operational costs in shallow or deep waters, in rough or calm seas. The hydraulically operated sliding deployment system can deploy multiple arrays simultaneously with READ's optimized configuration of 1500 cu.in. per array So, with up to 6000 cu.in. to play with the source is not only perfect for PerForMTM and 3D HybridVSPTM surveys, but is equally suited to OBS, site surveys or other common source vessel applications.
READ proprietary software SprintTM is used to process all types of VSP, microseismic and acoustic data. Special data conditioning is applied to weak signals such as DAS or microseismic before one of our imaging modules is used to generate the final results. We take advantage of primary, reflected and multiple vector wavefields to generate the most accurate well integrity analysis, microseismic maps, 3D VSP and salt flank images.
