In the oil sands, strong resistivity contrast between many of the geologic features make the resistivity method a very effective tool. The cap rock depth, thickness and integrity are very important factors in determining the extraction mode and parameters. Paleochannels can represent a significant hazard, but also represent potential sources of aggregate. Bottom water, when briny, can be effectively mapped by the resistivity method. The seismic method is often challenged in mapping many of these features. A carefully designed resistivity mapping survey can add significant value to the interpretation in the oil sands environment.
Two distinct technologies offer a robust resistivity solution in this application. The DIAS-32 resistivity imaging solution provides detailed 2D or 3D, deep search resistivity imaging capability. With DIAS-32, custom surveys are designed to address the particular challenge identified by the larger-scale SAM results. The DIAS-32 data are modeled to produce relevant 2D or 3D models.
The DIAS32 system provides unrivalled data density for a highly resolved resistivity data set. Cable-free surveying provides for a more efficient deployment and accurate result. 3D models of resistivity provide a valuable supplement to augment seismic interpretation.
