RSI applies rock physics tech for OMV in Barents Sea

RSI, an independent geoscience consulting firm, has been developing tailored workflows for lithology and fluid prediction under contract and in close collaboration with OMV Norge AS.

These are based on the 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%.

Reijo Kangas, OMV Norge Exploration Manager: “OMV Norge are pleased with the results from the RSI collaboration and continue to apply RSI’s unique expertise and technology for integration of rock-physics, seismic reservoir characterization and CSEM to Barents Sea targets.”

Dr. Lucy MacGregor, CTO of RSI, stated: “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.”
