C046 Weyburn Field Seismic Monitoring Project Summary 1 High-resolution time-lapse (4-D) multicomponent (9-C) seismic data acquired by the Reservoir Characterization Project (RCP) of the Colorado School of Mines were used to monitor a miscible CO2 flood in a thin (30m) carbonate reservoir at a depth of 1450m in Weyburn field Saskatchewan. Multicomponent time-lapse seismic images illustrate the influence of fracture zones on the flood. These fracture zones are very important to characterize and monitor in order to manage the flood successfully and to achieve the desired improved recovery efficiency. Introduction Weyburn Field is a 1.4 billion bbl field located on
