Geophysical Exploration

Geophysical Exploration is the application of the principles of Physics to the study of the subsurface, in search of hydrocarbon. Geophysical investigations of the interior of the earth involve taking measurements at or near earth’s surface that are influenced by the internal distribution of physical properties. The objective of any exploration venture is to find new volumes of hydrocarbons at a low cast and in a short span of time. The usual sequence of activities once an area has been selected for exploration starts with the definition of a basin. Petroleum exploration and production are concerned with the geological interpretation of geophysical data, especially in offshore areas. The methods used in petroleum exploration:

  • Gravity surveying
  • Magnetic surveying
  • Seismic surveying
  • Remote sensing
  • Wildcat
