The application of gravity gradient measurements to exploration has been growing over the past 20 years. The ability of tensor gradiometry instruments to greatly improve signal/noise when deployed on mobile platforms has transformed the usefulness of this technology. Airborne and marine Full Tensor Gradiometry (FTG) surveys have become an increasingly common part of the exploration and production toolkit. The ability of the modern instruments to provide high-resolution, spatial accuracy and very good signal/noise data has made this technology a more common part of integrated exploration and production management. The technology has a distinct cost advantage over seismic data acquisition and as such can deliver a competitive solution for imaging problems in some circumstances. There are now numerous published examples of effective use of FTG in the oil industry. The development of better instruments such as integration of direct contemporaneous measurement of conventional gravity is encouraging more interest in the technology. The potential for extending the use of FTG to reservoir monitoring and carbon dioxide sequestration assurance is likely to increase the popularity of the technology in future.
The most utilized technique for exploring the Earth's subsurface for petroleum is reflection seismology. However, a sole focus on reflection seismology often misses opportunities to integrate other geophysical techniques such as gravity, magnetic, resistivity, and other seismicity techniques, which have tended to be used in isolation and by specialist teams. There is now growing appreciation that these technologies used in combination with reflection seismology can produce more accurate images of the subsurface. This book describes how these different field techniques can be used individually and in combination with each other and with seismic reflection data. World leading experts present chapters covering different techniques and describe when, where, and how to apply them to improve petroleum exploration and production. It also explores the use of such techniques in monitoring CO2 storage reservoirs. Including case studies throughout, it will be an invaluable resource for petroleum industry professionals, advanced students, and researchers.
