Abstract / Full Text

Low-frequency acoustic equipment for microseismic oil and hydrocarbon 3D-exploration is developed by using equipment produced by ООО NTK Anchar (Moscow, Russia). By using stochastic electrochemical collating calibration and stochastic electrochemical Chebyshev spectroscopy, the Anchar equipment noise properties are studied in the Russian Arctic zone of Kola Peninsula, under the conditions of rather low natural microseismic noise. The Anchar equipment’s intrinsic noise turned out to be an order of magnitude lower than the microseismic noise. This means that the Anchar equipment can be used for the 3D-detection of microseismic noise fields in oil and gas fields in the Russian Arctic zone.
