The Concept of Borehole Seismic Acquisition and Processing

The course will give attendees a better understanding of the operational side of Borehole Seismic (BHS) to help with job planning and coordination of different job types with BHS contractor. The course will also cover wellsite QC and operation to help ensure optimum quality data is recorded so that survey objectives are met.
