HOUSTON -- Rock Solid Images has begun a 940-sq-km (363-sq-mi) rock physics-driven seismic inversion that covers the Jubilee field, offshore Ghana. The inversion will integrate log and core information acquired in the Hyedua-1, Hyedua-2, Mahogany-1, Mahogany-2, and Mahogany-3 wells.

"The original seismic inversion we conducted for Kosmos Energy and partners was limited to the West Cape Three Points block and covered 150 sq km," says Gareth Taylor, Rock Solid Images' senior VP.

"However, with only the Mahogany-1 well as a calibration point, we successfully predicted the presence of pay in the Mahogany-2 and Mahogany-3 wells so we are confident we will be able to contribute substantively to a comprehensive appraisal and delineation of this world-class field."
