It is well-known that CSEM data are sensitive to the presence of hydrocarbons, but the diffusive energy propagation results in low resolution images. Seismic data are much better suited to resolving structure and some rock properties, notably porosity, but attempts to map fluids from seismic data may be misleading due to the ambiguity between fluid and lithology effects. Careful combination of both types of data based on consistent rock physics helps to overcome their individual weaknesses. In this paper we describe a data integration study on the Luva gas field, resulting in estimates of gas volume and other reservoir properties such as porosity and shaliness.
