Seismic survey methods are widely applied for monitoring sea bottom oil field production and CO2 geological storage. This paper compares the differences between towed-streamer  and  Ocean Bottom Nodes (OBN) seismic survey. Multi-component, full-azimuth, high signal-to-noise ratio, high resolution, high accurate locating of receivers, high repeatable acquisition and high performance-price-ratio of seismic data are available by OBN method. Based on the review of  the development of OBN, monitoring oil field for sustainable production and CO2 geological sequestration by ocean bottom nodes seismic is prospective.

Key words:  Ocean bottom nodes      Seismic survey      Oil and gas production      CO2 geological storage
