RSI Announces Successful Application of Rock Physics Technology For OMV Norge

HOUSTON, Tex. -- Under contract and in close collaboration with OMV Norge AS, RSI has been developing tailored workflows for lithology and fluid prediction. These are based on 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 five per cent.

Stated 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.”

Stated Lucy MacGregor, CTO of RSI: “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.”

RSI is an independent geoscience consulting firm offering quantitative reservoir characterization with the goal of reducing exploration drilling risk and optimizing reservoir appraisal and development plans. The company is an industry leader in the interpretation and integration of seismic data with well log, CSEM and MT data, and uses advanced rock physics methods combined with sophisticated geologic models to deliver robust and reliable predictions of reservoir geometries and properties to our customers.

OMV Aktiengesellschaft is Austria’s largest listed industrial company. The exploration and production business segment has a strong base in Romania and Austria and a growing international portfolio.
