Tinggi field – analyzing the DHIs


Esso Production Malaysia Inc.


Abstract: The Tinggi field, which is in the Malay Basin, offshore Peninsular Malaysia, is a fully developed and producing field in Esso Production Malaysia Inc.‘s production sharing contract area.

A detailed pre-development field study of the near surface for direct hydrocarbon indicators or DHIs and geohazards, using conventional seismic and high resolution sparker data, provided invaluable information that helped in the accident-free development of Tinggi which has numerous uneconomic but hazardous shallow gas sands. These sands also cause depth prediction problems for the underlying reservoirs. Seismic modelling of one gas DHI is discussed in detail.
