The turnaround of seismic surveys and time lapse data in particular can be greatly reduced if the objectives are well defined at an early project stage. Through the definition of these objectives by the integrated reservoir management team consisting of all subsurface and production specialists, the geophysicists can design the survey geometry, processing workflow and prepare an interpretation program that delivers initial answers on sweep geometry and compartmentalization. It is demonstrated how a towed streamer monitor survey shot in September-October 2005 was planned and prepared enabling the availability of amplitude and time change maps for analysis within three weeks of the last shot fired whilst still including full processing and prestack migration of the monitor survey.
