Development and Test of a 1,000 Level 3C Fiber Optic Borehole Seismic Receiver Array Applied to Carbon Sequestration
Project No: FE0004522
The accomplishments are all related to the goal of developing a new fiber optic seismic array and include:
Developed an ultra sensitive FOSS™ and tested it at high temperature and over a large range of frequencies and loads.
Developed a facility to manufacture high performance FOSS™ arrays (Figure 1) and manufactured components for a five level FOSS™ array.
Fabricated a 5 level 3C array prototype and performed laboratory functionality testing.
Developed a deployment system strong enough to deploy a 1,000 level 3C borehole seismic array in boreholes.
Conducted a field test of the prototype 5 level 3C seismic array (Figure 2).
