Potential Field geophysical data, on its own, tells only part of a complex story. Integrated geophysical data interpretation is the key to maximising your understanding, whether it is a regional assessment, seismic acquisition planning, or well and field development.
Our interpreters have extensive experience in integrating gravity, magnetics, and other non-seismic geophysical data with seismic, well, geochemical, structural, and other data.
For frontier areas, public domain data is an important first step in evaluating areas of interest, especially where little or no other data exists. Any existing 2D potential field data will offer along-line constraint and uplift. With our extensive knowledge of the global potential field database and experience with regional geophysical datasets, Metatek can help you source and evaluate the data you need to maximise an exploration program.
When you are serious about getting the information you need, gravity and magnetic data can be used to fill the gaps and inform your decision-making process. Even 3D seismic data benefits enormously from high-resolution gravity and magnetic data that can assist in unravelling complex geological issues, particularly in areas with salt and volcanics.
At Metatek, we believe in taking a holistic view of the dataset. Once we’ve gathered all the necessary data, the qualitative data interpretation stage begins. Our qualitative approach is always tailored to our client’s needs, whether it be a rapid regional overview or a more detailed investigation combining several data sources. This involves:
The goal of a quantitative geophysical data interpretation is to delve deeper into the data, producing a set of integrated geological horizons to advance the exploration programme. To do this, we:
Every region presents its own geological and geophysical challenges. Taking the time to choose the right tools before acquiring a potential field survey will help you identify your targets in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. We’ll complete a feasibility study to assess which techniques, which platform, and which parameters will be most applicable for what you’re trying to achieve.
Metatek has built a library of datasheets that focus on key geographical and geological regions.
Our datasheets take two forms. Either a detailed, multi-page report combining all available data to produce a summary exploration overview, or a one-page flyer focusing on individual areas.
