Abstract

This project is to investigate the effect of frequency and resistive medium on the propagation of EM waves for application in Seabed Logging. Seabed Logging is an application of the marine controlled source electromagnetic (CSEM) method that is used to directly detect and characterize possible hydrocarbon-bearing prospects. The CSEM method has been used for a long time before, but the application as a direct hydrocarbon indicator is relatively new. The central idea of SBL is the guiding of electromagnetic energy in thin resistive layers within conductive sediments. Even though it has been well known for a long time that electromagnetic signals can propagate from a conductive region to another via resistive regions such as air or resistive parts of the lithosphere, its application in hydrocarbon exploration has not been developed until recently. [1] This might be due to the uncertainty of getting any significant response from thin resistive layers such as hydrocarbon reservoirs since electromagnetic energy is highly attenuated in conductive sediments. CST (Computer Simulation Technology) software will be used in this project to model an antenna and the EM waves. The parameters such as the EM wave's frequency and types of resistive medium used will represent the actual offshore enviroment. From the result of the simulation, it shows that different frequency will give different reading at the receiver. Lower frequency will gives higher magnitude of B-Field at the receiver. And medium resistivity with higher resistivity will respond and reflect the EM energy to the receiver.
