Nicolas Tellier, Gilles Ollivrin and Daniel Boucard present the implications of generating low frequencies for productivity and equipment capability and discuss how modern vibroseis solutions address this challenge. Extending the recorded seismic bandwidth has become an increasingly prevalent trend in the industry, for the clear benefits this approach provides for seismic imaging: reflections with reduced sidelobes, improved vertical resolution, more accurate velocity models and inversion providing better reservoir characterization.
