This paper shows part of the effort in Venezuela during the last eight years to record, process, and interpret multicomponent seismic data. We present the main results of three projects aimed mainly to help other studies in fracture, lithology, and heavy oil characterization in different types of geologic environments.

This field, in western Venezuela in the Barinas-Apure Basin, produces primarily from a fractured carbonate reservoir at a depth of 10 000 ft. The area is structurally simple. In early 1994, Pdvsa recorded in this field the first 3-C/2-D multicomponent survey in Venezuela to obtain information about fracture orientation and density...
