Simultaneous multiwell VSP data have been acquired using fibre optic cables in producing wells as distributed acoustic sensors. The measurement apparatus was retrofitted to the fibre optic cables installed for other purpose with completion of the wells. Data were acquired with no other instrumentation in the well and without disturbing the normal operation of the wells.
