Abstract

Designing a seismic characterization and monitoring program for a site with high levels of industrial and cultural infrastructure is by not trivial. At the MGSC Phase III project site, a combination of 3D surface seismic and VSP surveys will be used for site characterization and to monitor the injected CO2. The sparse existing data have been carefully analyzed to design 3D surface seismic and VSP surveys that will fit within the surface constraints at the site and meet the greater objectives of the project. The seismic data will be used to map formation heterogeneities and characterize fractures.
