Italy: Prediction and 3D imaging while drilling by drill-bit 3D RVSP ///

3D imaging by drill-bit seismic while drilling (SWD) data was successfully demonstrated in a first survey performed in Sicily in 2000. However, in this first survey, final 3D imaging results were achieved only after the well was completed. Following the experience of this pilot survey, a second 3D “reverse” vertical seismic profile (RVSP) was acquired in another exploration well drilled in Southern Apennines (Italy) in 2002.
