Because the results of the VSP indicated apparent reflections, TGI proceeded with the collection of 3.0 square miles of 3-D surface seismic data over the Rye Patch reservoir. The data acquisition (which included the use of LBNL's three-component high temperature borehole geophone in well 44-28) was accomplished in August 1998. Initial processed results provided by the subcontractor Subsurface Exploration Co. (SECO) were delivered to TGI in December 1998. After the initial analysis of SECO's results, it was decided that the processing was insufficient for correct analysis. LBNL was funded by DOE to reprocess the field data and asses the interpretability of the entire 3-D data set.
