It is widely accepted that, depending on acquisition technique, vertical seismic profiling (VSP) can provide us with extremely valuable information on seismic velocities (both P and S), attenuation and anisotropy of s eismic properties of the earth. Subsurface images, obtained with offset or 3D VSP could demonstrate superior resolution, signal-to-noise ratio and repeatability of surveys in comparison to standard surface seismic. These potential benefits are of great importance for both reservoir characterisation and time-lapse seismic monitoring. However in order to achieve them VSP surveys should be acquired with proper survey design and optimal source and receiver characteristics.
