The seismic story of the Guhlen discovery

The seismic story of the Guhlen discovery, Brandenburg State, Eastern Germany

Use of seismic data in exploration has evolved from simple structural mapping in 2D to complex reservoir characterization studies aimed at predicting reservoir properties prior to drilling. The success of these studies hinges on proper assessment of all subsurface data collected throughout the exploration process to determine the hydrocarbon potential of the target. This case study illustrates the exploration process associated with the Guhlen discovery in Brandenburg State, northeastern Germany, from early stage 2D seismic interpretation to a full rock physics study.
