3D seismic data is recognized as a key tool in successful reservoir management. The existing Dukhan 3D seismic data is more than 15<br>years old and is of poor quality. 3D seismic technology has advanced signifi cantly in the last 15 years and the technical case for new data<br>appears to be strong. However, in a mature fi eld with more than 700 wells, the potential business impact of new 3D seismic data needs<br>to be carefully evaluated. QP undertook a seismic feasibility study in 2003 and concluded that the technical and business impact of new<br>data needed to be tested before any larger scale full-fi eld re-shoot could be considered.
