BAHRAIN, UAE -- Schlumberger has expanded its Deep Reading portfolio with the release of a new electromagnetic DeepLook-EM crosswell seismic reservoir imaging technology.

"DeepLook-EM and our recently acquired Z-Seis crosswell seismic service bridge the resolution gap between well logs and surface measurements to provide customers answers at the reservoir scale," says Colin Hulme, technical director, Deep Reading, Schlumberger. "The addition of these technologies provides the opportunity to deliver advanced reservoir monitoring answers from combined measurements and by integrating them with additional data."

This second-generation DeepLook-EM system provides detailed resistivity profiles between wells up to 1 km (0.6 mi) apart using time-proven induction logging principles. Acquisition is performed using a dynamic transmitter sonde in one well and an array of receivers in an offset well. Receivers can be deployed in open or cased wells, according to Schlumberger.
