Detailed gravity, magnetics successful in exploring Azerbaijan onshore areas

V.G. Gadirov Geophysical Institute Baku L.V. Eppelbaum Tel Aviv University Tel Aviv Azerbaijan contains a large number of undiscovered hydrocarbon deposits of probable commercial value. Exploration for such deposits could be carried out not only by expensive seismostratigraphic surveys but also by prompt and cheap gravity and magnetic field analysis. This article shows great potential for detailed gravity and magnetic field modeling for direct detection of hydrocarbon pools and delineation of various hydrocarbon structures and signatures. Special attention was paid to investigating the subvertical zone over a hydrocarbon deposit. The gravity and magnetic field analysis was successfully ap...
