DC-4500 Seismoelectric Ground-flow Locator
An seismic wave generated electrokinetic potential method and geophysical technology for directly locating groundwater aquifers to deduce the associated petroleum hydrocarbon reservoir structure with high accuracy, low cost, site access , portability, and simple operational procedures in the field.
The seismoelectric method is different from conventional seismic prospecting or an electrical resistivity survey, which separately register either a seismic impulse velocity or electrical resistivity sounding data in the geological structure. Seismoelectric make use of the different physical character between the ground-flow(water and oil) from the earth solid (rock or soil) to locate ground-flow directly. This special character make seismoelectric not only detect water with 90% success rate, but is also able to work on the situation the traditional geophysics did not work properly, such as detecting reservoirs around salt domes, fracture reservoir or aquifer survey, geothermal exploration, tunnel prediction ,coal mining bed water, Dam and levees leaking detecting etc.
After hundred commercial success cases, we developed a seismoelectric data processing and interpretation system, that make our seismoelectric data is about 70% match the well log.
DC-4500 Seismoelectric Ground-Flow Locator receives both a seismic signal and a seismoelectric signal generated by the same seismic source. The penetration of seismoelectric signal is depend on the power of seismic source. We have got 3000 meters depth reservoir seismoelectric data in Kazakhstan with a Buffalo gun seismic source.
We provide the following types of service:
• Seismoelectric oil & gas survey special in Salt domes reservoir, fracture reservoir.
• Seismoelectric groundwater survey.
• Geotechnical water survey: tunnel prediction, coal mine water, fracture detecting.
• Geothermal survey.
• Research and development of seismoelectric exploration.
The DC-4500 is patented both in US and in China. •US (US 6,476,608). •China (CN 1392420A).
DC-4500 is used as groundwater survey equipment to a sub-contractor of the US NAVY.
We also service to CH2M HILL, Sinopec, Kazakhstan etc. So far we have more than 400 successful projects all over the world.
