Beginning in 2003 Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) began testing the crosswell electromagnetic method for waterflood
monitoring in Oman. The tomographic method, which determines interwell resistivity from inductive EM signals, is well
suited for tracking injected water volumes, especially when this fluid is a low resistivity, high salinity brine.
