Transitioning to High Density Vibroseis Seismic Acquisition: A Case Study

Andrea Crook OptiSeis Solutions Ltd. Rob McGrory, Nathan Baker, & Adam Westlake, Crescent Point Energy Summary In general, seismic acquisition in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) has been conducted using primarily explosive sources, whereas vibroseis acquisition has been limited to areas with relatively flat topography. With the recent advances in seismic acquisition and processing […]

Simultaneous Source vs. Regular Vibroseis Acquisition – A Direct Comparison

By Andrea Crook, P.Geoph. Summary Simultaneous source acquisition has proven to be effective at increasing trace density without incurring significant increases in seismic acquisition cost. As a result, most simultaneous source datasets have significantly higher trace density than previous datasets requiring decimation of the simultaneous source dataset or interpolation of the regular dataset to effectively […]
