Time-lapse multicomponent seismic monitoring of pressure depletion in tight-gas development can be used to increase recovery efficiency. Tight-gas plays require technology to enhance the economic viability of resource development. Our study at Rulison Field, Colorado, confirms that time-lapse, multicomponent seismic surveys can monitor tight-gas depletion and be used for well planning and completion design.
