The Reservoir Geophysics research program at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) provides services and research for industrial and government clients, specializing in:

  • Seismic analysis

  • Acoustic analysis

  • Electromagnetic analysis, modeling, and visualization

Applied Physics scientists deliver effective solutions in areas such as:

  • Reservoir characterization

  • Cavity detection

  • Environmental geophysics

Technical Strengths

Key technical strengths of the reservoir geophysics research program include:

  • Interpretation of seismic measurements

  • Modeling of interwell seismic measurements

  • Geological and well log data

Petrophysical work is handled through teaming arrangements with other organizations


Please view the "Recent Projects" pages for our current research projects.


SwRI provides a broad array of services for the oil and gas industry. With broad capabilities in this field, we provide a significant resource to small service companies and independent operators as well as large integrated corporations.
