A04 COMPARISON OF SENSOR POSITIONING METHODS IN SHALLOW WATER OCEAN BOTTOM CABLE SEISMIC SURVEYS IN THE ARABIAN GULF Abstract 1 This paper presents comparisons from various seismic receiver-positioning methods in a wide-azimuth 4component (“4C”) ocean bottom cable seismic survey. Methods presented include parallel oriented positioning (“P”) and cable orientation (“O”) runs acquired prior to 3D production data and orthogonally shot into receiver production (“Production”) data. Seismic data utilized includes direct and refracted first arrivals from field and post acquisition picking. Various cases are provided combining data from “P” “O” and “Production” acquisition. Cases include assumptions and limitations made in each
