Overview: Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) systems are fiber optic borehole seismic recording systems. Development of DAS technology has been rapid and fruitful during the past three to four years.  During that time DAS recording systems have gone from being an interesting R & D project to being an important tool for reservoir geophysics. The primary positive attributes of DAS systems are: receiver station spacing of 3-15 ft, repeatable broad bandwidth recording, and simultaneous recording of thousands of data channels over the entire vertical and horizontal length of a borehole. DAS systems can be used both in passive mode for microseismic, low-frequency strain, and acoustic emissions analysis and with active seismic sources including Vibroseis, dynamite, and borehole seismic sources.  Download Full Abstract

About our Speaker: Brian holds BS (Western Washington University), MS (U of Wyoming), and PhD (U of Wyoming) degrees in Geophysics. He has over 30 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry including successful oil exploration, software and technology development, and service company work. He has a long term professional interest in borehole seismology and is currently focused on further developing and commercializing seismic reflection imaging using horizontal DAS cables to measure reservoir properties for reservoir and frac engineering uses. Brian has been part of two SEG Best Paper awards, both related to microseismic technology. He currently holds the position of Vice President of Reservoir Geoscience at Sterling Seismic & Reservoir Services in Littleton, Colorado and lives in the Denver area.
