Integrated Geological Interpretation

Integrated Geological Interpretation

CGG has an interpretation team made up of experienced geologists and geophysicists who can extract geological information from your Multi-Physics data sets. By integrating all available geological and geophysical data - including seismic and well data - we are able to provide well constrained geological interpretation that enriches your exploration efforts.

Both intrasedimentary and basement structure can be mapped efficiently using gravity gradient, gravity and magnetic data combined with seismic data. By correlating Falcon® AGG surveys with seismic data, the distribution of sediments can be mapped including carbonates, volcanics and salt. This method can easily be applied to your entire license area with no gaps in the data.

Gravity gradient data can also be used to link structures between 2D seismic lines to provide a much better understanding of the geometry - both strike and dip - of structures. Structural interpretation maps are a valuable tool for planning follow up seismic programs, and for highlighting prospective structural hydrocarbon traps.

Profile-based magnetic depth estimation procedures combined with a basement structural interpretation allow the overall basin architecture to be determined. When combined with regional geological knowledge, this information can highlight high potential zones for follow-up work. Furthermore, seismic interpretation can be validated and updated by 2D gravity modelling along seismic lines.

​With a strong background in mineral exploration, CGG Multi-Physics has developed numerous electromagnetic (EM) systems, and has the experts that can turn this data into geology. Increasingly EM data is being used to map geology in the very near-surface to augment petroleum exploration programs to mitigate drilling risks, and help process seismic data.

At CGG Multi-Physics we have the ability to produce 3D geological models incorporating intra-sedimentary and basement structure by combining interpretation from seismic, gravity, magnetic, electromagnetic and well data. Importantly, this work is done quickly, allowing you the time to evaluate your geology and make important exploration decisions.
