BP's World Record & World First Seismic 

Program - Wamsutter, Wyoming

Colin Bruce, Subsurface Manager, BP

Jim Hollis, COO, Input/Output, Inc.



Wamsutter:  Field Location

Key facts

Tight gas field with >50Tscf GIIP discovered in ‘60s -



Area covers 1600sq mls

Over 2Tscf produced since first production in ‘77



Checker board land ownership gives BP 40% equity 

of total area

Reservoir is 500ft thick at depth of 10000ft with 



typically 100ft of reservoir sand

Porosity of 9% and permeability of 0.01mD



Developed with hydraulically frac’d vertical wells

Wells IP at 1mmscf/d – with recoveries of 2Bscf/well



In 2005 BP sanctioned a $2bn 15 year 7-rig drilling 

campaign including $113mm for technology

Currently developed to 80 acres

BP Objectives – Wamsutter ‘Major Project’

Address key challenges associated with the imaging of thin, 



tight gas-filled reservoirs in an environmentally sensitive area.

Apply and accelerate technology to improve business and 



environmental performance

Transformational ‘imaging’ outcome which affects all future 



BP Land Seismic Surveys on a global stage

Incident and injury free program





Why – improve margins on the field by high grading 

drilling portfolio

Attacking image quality, cost and cycle time 



requires a comprehensive ‘systems’ approach

The Seismic Workflow

Cost & Cycle Time Inefficiencies at Different Stages


FireFly Vision

Improve the image using full-sampling and full-wave 



Eliminate cables & develop infrastructure to facilitate high productivity

Reduce impact on the environment and improve safety



Scale station count without scaling people, cost 

and environmental impact.
