SeisMovieTM is CGG's solution for continuous high-resolution onshore reservoir monitoring. It offers unparallelled sensitivity and repeatability. Subtle and rapid reservoir variations can be captured, allowing applications for monitoring:

  • heavy oil production
  • steam and water injection enhanced production
  • reservoirs with small 4D signatures
  • subsurface gas storage
  • cap rock and injection casing integrity

heavy oil production

Using buried sources and buried receiver arrays, the SeisMovieTM system allows data to be acquired continuously for monitoring enhanced oil recovery during production. Measurements (time shifts and amplitude variations) bring enormous value to the understanding of the reservoir dynamics, as they are related to fluid movements and geomechanical effects.

Where is the steam going?

On the Schoonebeek heavy oil field (Netherlands), where oil is produced by Gravity Assisted Steam Drive, SeisMovieTM measurements gave tangible input to the reservoir engineers to track the steam path from the injector wells to the producer wells.
