We present a method for imaging with separated wavefields from an ocean bottom cable acquisition to deliver images of the subsurface with enhanced illumination and angular diversity. Using this data, we investigate whether it is feasible to decimate the sources or receivers without degrading the structural image from separated wavefield imaging. We conclude by determining if this would be beneficial to reduce acquisition cost and to provide illumination below obstructions like a platform hole.
