Since 1989, BP Exploration Colombia (BPXC) has acquired extensive 2D and 3D seismic, and over 30 vertical seismic profiles in the Llanos Foothills in Colombia. In these 15 years BPXC has focused on continuously improving imaging to meet the needs of different stages of development, as well as to operate in structurally more complex areas. The result has been a process of incessant learning in the acquisition, processing, and interpretation of seismic in a thrust belt environment. This paper summarizes a series of imaging pitfalls and success stories in the Foothills, as well as the different tools that have been tested to address the ever-increasing needs of exploration and production.
