Permanent reservoir monitoring solutions, if of high enough sensitivity and low enough cost, can be used to tackle the many problems faced by seismic monitoring onshore and thereby increase the profitability of such IOR/EOR projects. Here we focus on thermal EOR monitoring using a SeisMovie® system provided by CGG, installed in one of the production pads in Peace River, and recording data since May 2014. The daily seismic data are integrated with other surveillance data to monitor steam conformance and provide options to adjust injection and production schedules to optimize recovery.
