Amoco Production Company integrates the interpretation of magnetotelluric (MT) data with seismic, gravity, and magnetic data for regional basin reconnaissance and prospect evaluation worldwide. Experience shows that : MT data acquisition can be fast and affordable; high quality data suitable for relatively high resolution interpretation can be acquired in most parts of the world; and in many instances MT data has made a critica) contribution to the final interpretation. One case history that demonstrates some of these advantages is described in this paper. MT was used as part of a very broad regional program to study a large, remote, and essentially unexplored area . A seismic program and stratigraphic well tested the interpretation of gravity, magnetic and MT data and the correlation was excellent .
