Signal apparition using triple source in simultaneous mode has been successfully tested in a field trial at the Grane field in the Norwegian North Sea.

When used in a repeat setting, spanning eight months of field history, results show that apparition-enabled simultaneous source data acquired in triple source mode is operationally viable, and that subsequent processing provides data suitable for time-lapse analysis.

Comparison with standard PRM production data supports these findings.
