Sponsored Webinar: Optiq — Borehole Seismic at the Speed of Light
Recorded On: 11/10/2021
Join Schlumberger Product Champion Nick Fundytus and Geophysics Technical Director Pierre Bettinelli to discuss Optiq* Schlumberger fiber-optic solutions for Borehole Seismic. Optiq solutions provide continuous and instantaneous measurements, and when coupled with Schlumberger’s broad digital offering, deliver actionable insights leading to greater operational performance, efficiency, and reduced environmental impact. In this webinar Nick and Pierre will discuss how Optiq works, how fibre-optic solutions for Borehole Seismic can improve your operations, share applications with case studies, while answering your questions and before moving even deeper in to the physics of measurement, job planning, and processing.
