We present numerical modeling of seabed logging (SBL) for 3-D hydrocarbon detection. We show that the SBL results for the 3-D reservoir are very sensitive to survey configuration. Three dimensional forward modeling and plotting of the fields and currents in the sub-seafloor sediments is helpful to optimize SBL survey configuration and understand its response.
