Why use gravity and magnetics modelling? This presentation focuses on a petroleum exploration problem and outlines an approach to solving an interpretation problem by following a holistic data review; including data processing, data synthesis and modelling. We demonstrate the process to build a simple gravity model to guide deeper, noisy seismic interpretation of a problem seismic facies in a potential petroleum prospect in Turkana Region in Northwest Kenya.
What Will Be Shown
Geology of the region of study.
Form of the various data available.
Processing issues involved in preparing the data for interpretation.
Interpretation and modelling of the data.
