Multi-Measurement Integration – A Case Study from the Barents Sea
Publication: First Break
Publication Date: 04/01/2013

Integration of different types of geophysical measurements in part of the West Loppa area in the Barents Sea has enabled definition of geologic features that, when considered separately within each dataset, have a higher level of uncertainty. The combination of 3D seismic and 3D controlled source electromagnetic (CSEM) data has the advantage of providing multi-property models—including AI, Poisson’s ratio, density and resistivity—that truly describe the 3-dimensional geological structures that may provide prospective targets for hydrocarbon exploration and development. In this study, an amplitude anomaly highlighted by seismic processing corresponds with a resistive anomaly found with CSEM data modeling and inversion. This could indicate an area charged with hydrocarbons.
