In the Permian Basin of Texas, USA, the majority of new seismic acquisition is constrained by land access restrictions. We discuss the acquisition challenges and processing results for surface-seismic surveys and demonstrate how adopting a new high-density acquisition and ‘azimuth-aware’ broadband processing strategy provide a step change in seismic data quality. Important geological insights derived from the new data have had a material impact on economic and risk assessments and the development plans for prospects in this area.
