BP applies novel seismic survey offshore Trinidad

Independent simultaneous sourcing is a revolution for marine seismic data acquisition, quality, and efficiency. It is revolutionary in terms of its business impact as well. In Trinidad's multiple stacked reservoirs, gas-saturated sand tends to slow sound transition, and the seismic waves tend to distort to the point that the shallow pay masks the deeper pay. The Columbus basin seismic survey was designed to discover new prospects in existing and future major gas fields. The 1,000-sq km (386-sq mi) high-density, 3D, ocean-bottom sensor program was the first commercial use of the ISS technology with seabed acquisition.
