HOUSTONUnder contract and in close collaboration with OMV Norge AS, RSI has been developing tailored workflows for lithology and fluid prediction.

These workflows are based on integration of seismic, well, and CSEM data with geology, and have been applied in pre-drill analyses in the Barents Sea. For the recent OMV-operated Hanssen well, fluid type was accurately predicted, and column height and fluid contact were within 5%.

Dr. Lucy MacGregor, chief technology officer of RSI, says, “These projects demonstrated the power of integrating multiple geophysical data within a rock physics framework. Ambiguities present in the interpretation of each of the technologies when applied separately were resolved using RSI’s proprietary WISE workflows, allowing accurate quantitative estimates of rock and fluid properties to be made.”
