Title: Magnetotelluric Petroleum Exploration--Technology Update and Case Histories: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Yorham Shoham

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The use of magnetotelluric soundings for the estimation of subsurface electrical conductivity structures and properties has been increasing during the past several years. Greater interpretational capabilities and improved techniques for achieving higher data quality, coupled with the experience gained, have made the method a practical and effective exploration tool. Magnetotelluric exploration has been applied to a large variety of structural and stratigraphic problems and has proven effective and capable of yielding information even in areas which give poor or uninterpretable seismic results.
