2012). Seismic time-lapse studies were carried out (Fig. , 2012). 2 Model and Simulation In order to do continuous monitoring of the behavior of injected CO2 storage, the 4D seismic method is more expensive and cannot be carried out frequently. As the alternative method, Kasahara et al. , 2013a). 3 Ketzin CO2 injection site. 40 Time Lapse Approach to Monitoring Oil, Gas, and CO2 Storage by Seismic Methods They modeled an N-S line above the Ketzin CO2 storage site with the VP, VS, and density structure obtained by the Ketzin project.

4). We use a cosine-taper window in the frequency domain when we transform the transfer function from the frequency domain to the time domain. Then we can obtain time domain seismograms for the force with a frequency band from fa to fb. k) Description of the second-rank tensor of the transfer function: When we describe the transfer function, we use the following expressions: HzV is the vertical force observed by the UD-component geophone. HxH or HyH is the horizontal force observed by the NS- or EWcomponent geophone.

In SAGD method, the injector of vapor is the upperhorizontal well and the producer of bitumen oil is the lowerhorizontal well. The distance between the injector and the producer is 5 m. The 3D seismic data in 2002 and 2006 were compared (Figs. 14). There is distinct change between two 3D surveys in 2002 and 2006. The top Devonian at the southern half of the NS reflection line showed distinct lower bending by the decrease of velocity (Fig. 13). The travel-time changes occurred at the whole area of the western wells of H-Q (Fig.
