Abstract: Abstract Historically, acoustic wellbore monitoring is one of the main methods of detecting fluid movement behind the casing. Analysis of the complex acoustic environment in the wellbore can be challenging. A standard hydrophone noise tool is unable to measure flow directions (vertical and horizontal) and cannot detect low flow, low pressure sporadic events or multiple sources. This uncertainty may result in subjective acoustic interpretation leading to poor advice on remedial actions for wells …
