GroundMetrics has developed a new class of land-based electromagnetic sensors and survey methods that acquire deep subsurface resistivity data between and far beyond wellbores. This unique technology provides full field imaging & monitoring level precision.
This suite of technologies opens new opportunities for your oilfield with key technological advancements:
These sensors are non-invasive and operate 100% at the surface.
Acquire Multi-Mile Resistivity Data – Deploying the sensors at the surface and counter electrodes also at the surface but at a significant distance away from the wellbore allows data to be acquired between and far beyond wellbores.
Permanent Installation – Such precision and stability combined with capacitive sensors that are immune to environmental changes mean the system can be installed permanently for ongoing monitoring. (Roadmap)
The GroundMetrics proprietary system consists of rapidly deployable capacitive electric-field sensors (eQube™), a man-portable wireless 24-bit data recorder (Eos™), a non-invasive Top Casing Source (TCS-30™), and a hybrid source control unit that also measures the source output with the highest achievable accuracy possible using current electronics (Imon™).
The technology is optimized for low frequency operation over the band 0.1 Hz – 100 Hz with operation from 0. 01 Hz – 500 Hz. The system is health, safety, and environmentally (HSE) friendly with no impact on wildlife and livestock.
