  As the oil and gas industry develops more complex and challenging reservoirs to meet the ever-increasing demand for energy, technology is needed for a closer look at the reservoir architecture. The complexity of many reservoirs requires the ability to image the reservoir with an order of magnitude better resolution than surface seismic methods. Crosswell seismic imaging is a technology that provides resolution of 1 to 5 meters and has transitioned from a topic of extensive research to practical commercial applications. This talk highlights the resolution benefit of crosswell seismic, the recent technology enhancements in crosswell imaging that make the method suitable in real-world reservoirs and a number of examples from a variety of applications wherein crosswell seismic adds economic value in reservoir development: both in high-resolution reservoir characterization and reservoir monitoring. Applications to be discussed will include providing seismic data in poor seismic areas, highresolution reservoir characterization, EOR monitoring and tight gas.
