Active source surveys are widely used for the delineation of hydrocarbon accumulations. Most source and receiver configurations are designed to illuminate the first 5 km of the earth. For a solid understanding of the evolution of the crust, and therewith the hydrocarbon potential, much larger depths need to be illuminated. The use of large-scale active surveys is feasible, but rather costly. As an alternative, we propose to use passive acquisition configurations in combination with seismic interferometry (SI).
