Watering Mauritania

Watering Mauritania

Geovista and its partners have just completed training and commissioning of a complete geophysical logging system for water well evaluation in Mauritania. The system is part of a wider project to deliver water solutions to remote locations. Exploring water wells for drinking, irrigation and education is a long term effort to promote sustained growth....

The GeoVista down-hole monitoring Geophone

The GeoVista down-hole monitoring Geophone

GeoVista have recently released a tri-axial, down-hole geophone sensor. Working together with the interest of our clients, the monitoring geophones can be used for long term seismic recording in shallow wells. A three axis geophone is lowered into a shallow well and analogue measurements are measured over time. These geophones are generally deployed as part of a field array of geophones connected to a central database for long term monitoring. The probe can come with a bow spring to couple the sensor to the side of the bore-hole wall. The geophone can be left in the well, cemented over or kept to be used when needed. Clients have the freedom to choose the sensitivity of the geophone sensor and can customize the geophone for their specific applications. Contact us for more information. Click to view the...

Why not meet Geovista at ASEG or Geofluid this year?

Why not meet Geovista at ASEG or Geofluid this year?

Geovista will be exhibiting at the 25th annual geophysical conference and exhibition (ASEG) in Adelaide, Australia this year (August 21-24th). The event will be jointly hosted by ASEG, PESA and AIG. We will also be setting up at the Geofluid exhibition in Piacenza, Italy. This will take place between the 5th and 8th October this year. We look forward to seeing you at the stalls! http://www.conference.aseg.org.au/...

The new 2-Arm caliper – with independent arms

The new 2-Arm caliper – with independent arms

Independent 4-arm caliper measurements, optionally orientated is now possible in small diameter holes. The new Geovista 2-arm caliper sonde with individual arms is designed with the purpose of measuring accurate borehole radii and diameter of small holes. In many cases such as geotechnical boreholes, our traditional 4-arm caliper with independent arm measurements is too large to fit due to its 80mm diameter. The older traditional 2-arm caliper can only give one measurement indicating the overall diameter in one axis. The new 2-arm caliper with independent arms is a small diameter (45mm) probe that gives two measurements: X1 radii and X2 radii. Connecting two of these sondes together will give you an impressive 4-arm caliper sonde equivalent – with a much smaller tool diameter. This tool is combinable with other Geovista sondes. It also comes with an in-built alignment sub to allow the alignment of the caliper arms to be adjusted if two calipers are run together or if a verticality tool is used. This tool increases the range of applications in smaller holes including borehole volume calculation, structure analysis, fracture and cavity localization and rock integrity evaluation. Connected with a verticality sonde, the ability to orientate each arm greatly improves the evaluation and problem solving of boreholes. click here to visit the caliper sonde page...

The all new North Seeking FOG Gyro

The all new North Seeking FOG Gyro

Have you heard about the new Geovista North seeking Gyro? Geovista has released a new fibre optic Gyro (FOG) that can be deployed in highly inclined holes and any down-hole  environment. It is a multi shot real time sonde that is run on wireline cable, it is simple to operate and does not require any calibration. Some features include: • No need for initial setting to a reference at surface. It finds it’s reference at each station. • No need to record drift station • Operated in highly inclined boreholes • No influence by magnetic environment • Solid state sensors. The increase in reliability and longevity, together with a reduction in the build cost and sale price, all make the fibre optic gyro sonde a welcome alternative. Critically, they save time, they are virtually maintenance-free and essentially, they help keep those boreholes right on target. The tool is ideal for drillers as it is easy to use, fast and saves a lot of time and money. It can also prove to be an integral part of a service company’s service offering.
