Data quality of a low fold seismic survey employing a buried multi-component array at Ketzin
To monitor the migration of the injected CO2 in the Ketzin project (Germany) a permanently buried multi-component seismic array has been installed in August 2009. Besides passive seismic recordings, this monitoring system was used to record data for an active survey carried out in 2009, resulting in a 200 m long 2D seismic line roughly passing over the monitoring well Ktzi 202. This relatively small set-up is meant as a pre-screening study to demonstrate the added value of the buried sensors before installing a larger 3D array. A first analysis of the active seismic data shows, that the use of an array of buried receivers results in seismic data that offer a superior frequency content and less surface related coherent noise. This setup is also expected to lead to an increased repeatability. This paper describes the experimental set-up and first results of the acquired baseline data using the buried sensors.
