We apply a new method for birefringence analysis at depth to a tight gas reservoir in Rulison Field, Colorado. The new method is based on a multicomponent version of the virtual source method in which VSP receivers are turned into virtual shear sources in the zone of interest. This allows accurate detection of even small amounts of azimuthal anisotropy under complex overburden where traditional methods fail. We used the new method to measure shear wave splitting of less than 1% in a reservoirdoi:10.1190/1.3059402 fatcat:l74yavh7gbestdygjoar6oods4
