Lucy MacGregor, Slim Bouchrara, James Tomlinson, Uwe Strecker, Jianping Fan, Xuefeng Ran and Gang Yu argue that a significantly more robust interpretation of rock and fluid properties for a pre-drill prospect appraisal can be obtained from the resistivity information acquired by a controlled source electromagnetic (CSEM) survey if seismic and well information are incorporated. This is illustrated using a case study from offshore West Africa, where a CSEM dataset was acquired in 2009.
