Offshore Hydrocarbon Mapping (OHM) has completed the acquisition of the Houston-based Rock Solid Images (RSI). RSI integrates fundamental rock physics with well data and surface seismic to interpret geophysical signatures in terms of reservoir properties such as lithology, porosity and saturation, providing geologic insight and reservoir understanding at all stages of the oilfield life cycle. OHM provides controlled-source electromagnetic imaging (CSEM), an offshore geophysical technique to detect the presence and extent of hydrocarbon accumulations below the seabed. The two companies have been collaborating for over a year on initiatives to integrate CSEM data into RSI’s geologic models. This acquisition follows a strategic alliance with CGGVeritas to jointly develop the global market for CSEM. CGGVeritas has acquired 15% of the shares of OHM.
