Devriese and Oldenburg (2016), abbreviated below as DO16, propose a synthetic case study aimed at demonstrating the advantages and limitations in using galvanometric- and induction-based resistivity methods to monitor the growth of steam-assisted gravity drainage steam chambers. They first simulate a simplistic case and then they apply their strategy to a more realistic geometry inspired from a case study operated by Imperial Oil. The geophysical work is based on a set of petrophysical relationships and classical regularization methods for the inverse problem. The petrophysical model used to connect the underlying physics of the problem to the geophysical observable is...
