Applications of drill-bit seismic has developed since the end of the 80's (Rector and Marion 1991). This technique uses the noise generated by the drill-bit during perforation as seismic energy. The signal is recorded with sensors placed on the rig and witti geophones in the ground; after processing it is possible to use the data in the same way as traditional VSP data (Angeleri et al. 1990).
