Comprehensive exploration reports based on a Density Mapping Technology (DMT).

The reports combine benefits of DMT with other potential field and/or seismic data to provide a complex view on tectonics, basement and basin structure, sedimentary thickness and petroleum systems. The DMT Regional Reports are highly beneficial for seismic survey planning as:

  • Advanced method for new seismic acquisition planning
  • Purchase of most valuable existing seismic data

DMT reports also incorporate publicly available seismic data to significantly improve seismic interpretation and to track structures of interest between and out of seismic sections.

Examples of Core Benefits

Following examples show the core benefits from exploration projects worldwide. The credibility has been verified by 2D seismic data.

Precise Density Mapping

High accuracy and resolution of DMT enables us to make structural and tectonic maps, interpretation and models with higher resolution compared to conventional non-seismic geophysical data. Example demonstrates that DMT provides different information about studied area. Structural features interpreted with DMT were verified on seismic and borehole data.

Structural and Tectonic mapping

Structural and tectonic mapping directly results from precise density mapping since complex structures such as faults, folds and juxtaposition of different structural blocks often create high density contrasts. Distribution of these contrasts, represented by high gradients on DMT data, allows to interpret structures, potential trapping system, role of faults in hydrocarbon migration paths, etc.

*Structural and tectonic mapping by DMT. Positive and negative zones in DMT data mark structural highs and basin areas. Steep gradients define position of faults.

Basement Surface and Structure

Higher densities of basement rocks compared to sedimentary sequences of basins make strong response in DMT data. DMT is therefore effective tool for exploration of basement surface and structure. Example shows basement surface (in seismic line) clearly reflected by 3D map of DMT data. The DMT enables us to determine structure of basement and outline structures with potential hydrocarbon occurrences in elevated fractured basement or in 4-way closures above basement arches.

*Identification of basement structure by DMT data. Seismic interpretation of basement surface compared with 3D map of DMT data clearly demonstrates high effectivity of DMT in mapping of basement surface.

Basin Structure and Sedimentary Infill

Exploration of basin structure and sedimentary infill is another capability of DMT. Using this method we are able to outline basin structure, variation of its sedimentary infill and track those structures out of the 2D seismic line to predict their extent. Example demonstrates that information about structure extent gained from DMT has impressive value in exploration.
