Electromagnetic sounding technology was presented at the forum in Portugal

Scientists from Irkutsk National Research Techical Institute Yuriy Davydenko and Denis Bogdanovic presented at the international forum  Near Surface Geoscience-2018 the technology for electromagnetic sounding in engineering survey and search of hydrocarbons.

At the exhibition stand, the results of two expeditions were presented: shipboard tests of the unified software and hardware complex “MPAC-3D-ELECTRO”. The works were held last summer in the Black Sea in the framework of the MARINET project. The “MPAC-3D-ELECTRO” power source and the measuring station are installed on the ship, and the generator and receiving braids are towed behind the vessel, triggering and recording electromagnetic pulses that transmit information about the structure of the seabed. Such measuring electromagnetic systems have been successfully used for several years by specialists of the Siberian Geophysical Company to search for hydrocarbons on the Russian Arctic shelf.

Over 40 applications are submitted for the UMNIC final

On December 20, JSC “United Shipbuilding Corporation” hosted the final selection of the UMNIC program in the MARINET areas. The UMNIC program of the Fund for the Promotion of Innovation is aimed at supporting commercially oriented scientific and technical projects of young researchers, for the second year it has been conducted for the MARINET areas.

Within the program, the Foundation provides grants for scientific research carried out by specialists aged 18 to 30 years.

This year, about 70 applications for various directions of the Marinet road map were submitted to the correspondence stage of the competition, over 40 of them were submitted for the final selection stage.

Mobile marine system for hydraulic fracturing

Mobile marine system for hydraulic fracturing – a set of technological equipment for marine applications, providing for enhancement and acid fracturing, offshore oil and gas fields, including on the Arctic shelf.

The complex is an innovative design which has no analogues in the Russian Federation.

Its technical characteristics is not inferior to foreign analogues, which are operated by service companies Baker Hughes, Halliburton (USA) and Schlumberger (USA – France). (more…)

Multifunctional hydroacoustic scanner (MHS)

The project is intended for implementing of the roadmap towards the development of the advanced underwater robotics used for the inspection of hydro technical facilities (HTF) and emergency risk assessment.

NPP “Fort XXI” proposes an innovative multifunctional hardware and software complex providing a comprehensive assessment of the technical condition of HTF underwater constructions for the safety declaration. The complex provides rapid high-resolution control of the underwater dam parts.

MHS implements the original technology of hydroacoustic surveying using the special vessel moving near the surveyed surface along the cable support. It allows to achieve the required detail at the investigation of deep-seated hydraulic structures (more than 40-50 m). (more…)

Distributed fiber-optic hydroacoustic sensor

The fiber-optic sensor being developed represents a distributed phase array of hydroacoustic signals. It will be exploited as a towed seismic streamer in active marine seismic survey and as an ocean bottom seismic system for acquisition of microseismic events at underwater exploration of hydrocarbon reservoirs. Its long fiber-optic cable acts as a set of sequential sensing elements and simultaneously represents the data collection line.

The system consists of three main parts, which are being developed in collaboration of different profile companies. The first part is hardware located on the surface, which includes optical, electronic and digital subsystems. The hardware part is being developed by our company. The second part is the actual sensing element of the system. It is a specially designed fiber-optic cable having a complex structure, which was given directional properties in space. And the third one is the software allowing to conduct digital signal processing in real time and also to automate analysis and interpretation of collected information. (more…)
