GReD activities in gravimetry for the oil & gas industry

Within the collaboration with Politecnico di Milano, GReD has started activities on the frontier of geomatics R&D for Earth knowledge to enable innovative solutions for oil & gas industry. These solutions bring important advantages in the exploration and production activities, particularly in wide and poorly explored areas, thus allowing for a better identification of the most promising acreages on a regional scale.

The R&D activities aim to considerably improve performances of airborne kinematic gravimetry/gradiometry in terms of accuracy and spatial resolution of the retrieved local gravity field, to combine different gravity observations in a multi-scale approach (delivering a local grid of free air/Bouguer gravity anomalies), and to estimate a mass density distribution from gravity data coupled with geological information through Bayesian inversion methods.
