We consider the problem of depth conversion at the Edvard Grieg field. Measurements of deep directional resistivity suggest that the top surface on Edvard Grieg is much smoother than what is indicated by the interpretation of seismic reflectors. We investigate this problem by tools of standard depth conversion, by integrating measurements from deep directional resistivity into the standard kriging equations. We propose a statistical model which is able to reveal whether we should introduce a smoothing term for the time interpretations to improve the mapping of the top surface.
