Abstract

Seismic coring is a land acquisition technique that enables us to obtain a full‐azimuth seismic‐rich data of the subsurface earth that is close to the real model since it is based on the concept of constant arrival time. Since this technique is still only a theoretical idea and has not been practically tested on land this makes it incompletely studied and therefore may need further modifications to yield the expected results. The interpretation of different geologic structures would be easier and more precise thus, it would provide the interpreter with reliable data that would reduce the probability of misinterpretation and hopefully increase the chances of drilling a productive oil well. From the above mentioned advantages, this technique would be more applicable and give detailed data than the conventional 3D acquisition techniques. In addition to that it will give us the true picture of the subsurface structures with little interpretation as compared with the currently used 3‐D arrays.
