I021 Imaging Salt Bottom and Flanks from Interior of a Salt Dome using a Walkaway VSP Abstract 1 This paper presents a new VSP method to image the salt-sediment boundary from a borehole drilled inside a salt dome. This method utilizes standard borehole seismic techniques such as 3-component (3C) downhole receivers and walkaway VSP (WVSP) source geometry. Under the proper conditions the salt dome flanks and the base of the salt structure can be delineated. Finite Difference (FD) modeling was used to generate the full acoustic wave field recorded from such a borehole seismic survey. The reflected waves from the
