Ability to map and identify multiple layers with high resolution near surface
SkyTEM is recognized globally as the best technology for mapping aquifers. Now the oil and gas sector is taking advantage of these enhanced resolution systems for their ability to accurately map subtle changes in lateral geology and for the reliable inputs they deliver for detailed interpretation – from the very near surface to depth.
SkyTEM data is used to map shallow gas reservoirs, fresh, saline and acidic groundwater and to characterize deeper buried pathways such as pleistocene channels, paleovalleys, paleochannels and incised or glacial fluvial valleys. SkyTEM’s Dual Moment capability makes it possible to map these formations at varying depths concurrently with near surface targets, such as aggregates, that can be of geotechnical interest and potential engineering value.
A recent case study can be found here.
SkyTEM data is particularly valuable to the oil and gas sector because:
The SkyTEM method is applied globally for many applications. As the only system capable of operating in dual transmitter modes SkyTEM delivers accurate near surface data together with data to depths up to or greater than 500 m in some cases. The system discriminates between weak geological contrasts giving a more complete and accurate interpretation of geology while increasing confidence in modeling deeper geological structure.
