In a low oil price environment, the choice of the 4D seismic technology needs to be adapted to tighter cost restrictions. Being able to reduce further the uncertainty related to specific technical needs will translate into better decision making. In this context we propose an approach which takes advantage of existing non-repeat 3D seismic surveys, in conjunction with production history, in order to steer the future 4D strategy. A North Sea example illustrates the flow and shows how a fit for purpose solution manages to extract valuable information from non-repeat surveys and eventually assess the need for a new repeat survey.
