An electrokinetic potential method and geophysical technology for directly locating a groundwater aquifer or associated petroleum hydrocarbon reservoir fluids and brines with very high accuracy, low cost, site access , portability, and simple operational procedures in the field.
The seismoelectric survey 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 aquifer or petroleum hydrocarbon reservoir, respectively.
DC-4500 Seismoelectric Ground-Flow Locator receives both a seismic signal and a seismoelectric signal generated by the same seismic source.
DC-4500 Seismoelectric survey can avoid a dry hole, indicates either a petroleum reservoir and groundwater immediately in real time analysis. With the reference application to locate such fluids- crude oil or natural gas , the detection of groundwater, recharge investigations, and associated salt water brines.
We can provide the following services:
Seismoelectrics - DC-4500 - Ground-Flow Locator
A seismoelectric recording system. Consist of seismoeletric signal data pre-adjusters and computer control. A military grade computer used as the control with built in GPS.
Data Processing and Interpretation
The data file from DC-4500 is in the ASCII format. The data processing of seismoelectric signal is a tough job, it depend on seismic wave propagation wave equation and electrokinetic potential theory. We offer seismoelectric signal data processing and interpretation service.
Field Operation of The DC-4500
Field operation of the portable DC-4500 is not complicated as shown in the photo but requires only careful attention to the proper assembly of the components. The electrodes and geophone are connected by a cable to the DC-4500 computer unit and placed on the ground. The seismic source is generated by either a mechanical impact such as a sledge hammer (or weight drop) or an explosive device such as a buffalo gun/12 gauge depending on the desired target ...
