Using Borehole Electroseismic Measurements to Detect and Characterize Fractured ( Permeable ) Zones

  title={Using Borehole Electroseismic Measurements to Detect and Characterize Fractured ( Permeable ) Zones},
  author={Oleg V. Mikhailov},
We present a new type of field measurement capable of detecting and characterizing fractured (permeable) zones intersecting a borehole. The method is based on measuring electrical fields generated by a borehole Stoneley wave. In this paper, we describe the measurement technique, present field data, and propose a theoretical model, which correctly predicts amplitudes and phases of the electrical fields measured in the borehole experiment. The theoretical model and the field data demonstrate that… CONTINUE READING
