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 …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
