Temperature Anomaly Mapping: A Risk Reduction Technology

Lloyd Fons, Joe Donovan


Today's oil and gas industry is constantly searching for ways to reduce the risks associated with finding and developing hydrocarbons. Temperature Anomaly Mapping (TAM) is a geophysical technology that, when used in conjunction with seismic surveys and/or sound geological engineering, will help identify the composition of fluids contained within a trap.

In this paper, the authors will explain the technology, how it can be applied, and case histories where TAM has been applied to identify commercial hydrocarbon reservoirs.
