The continental shelf of the Barents Sea is one of the less known but more promising "new" basins on Earth. Seismic investigations give clear indication of at least two active petroleum systems in the region, while resistive anomalies concentrated in certain portions of the sedimentary sequences could indicate the presence of hydrocarbon fluids. In this paper, these two aspects are analyzed in an integrated way on a high resistive and seismic anomaly present in Cretaceous to Oligocene sediments. Multi-measurement integration allows a more precise definition of geologic features that, considered separately, have a level of uncertainty higher than the one observed when the same features are considered integrating different models coming from different methodologies. This is fundamental in individuating and derisking potential prospects.
