Technical Paper: Application of 3D Anisotropic CSEM Inversion Offshore West of Greenland

Society: SEG
Paper Number:
Presentation Date: 2009

CSEM can provide oil companies with information on rock resistivity before drilling a well. We present a CSEM interpretation workflow based on anisotropic 3D inversion applied to a dataset acquired offshore west of Greenland. We show how the method can give complementary information on the resistivity properties. Integrated with seismic and geological knowledge, this allows high-grading prospective leads, detection of resistivity features such as volcanics or shallow basement, and provides evidence of possible resistivity anisotropy.
