The Effect of Bandwidth on Land VSP Quality

T. Dean1, J.R. Tulett2, M. Puckett2, and D. Lane2



As the search for petroleum has intensified attention has shifted to more challenging (i.e. deeper and more complex) targets. A key component of exploration is the acquisition of vertical seismic profile (VSP) surveys, for which the increase in target complexity has coincided with higher requirements for VSP operations, in particular for data with higher amplitudes and a wider bandwidth. Although acquiring data with a wider bandwidth is often an objective of modern VSP surveys there is little evidence as to how much bandwidth is enough.
