  • Publication number: 20190187317
    Abstract: An offshore reservoir monitoring system (100) comprises a vertical array (110) with multiple seismic receivers (120) less than 10 m apart. During operation, the vertical array is deployed in a shallow borehole (111) in a seabed (10) away from noise at a seafloor (11). The dense spacing of receivers (120) ensures an adequate number of sensors (120) in the shallow borehole (111) and a spatial sampling rate appropriate for suppressing coherent noise in the shallow layers under the seafloor (11). Vertical arrays (110) can be added to the system (100) at any time.
