At the exploration stage of oil and gas fields it is extremely important to correctly choose the geological and geophysical materials integration approach. Each data set contains errors; therefore, it is necessary to estimate uncertainties and possible errors of geological models. The use of an effective geological exploration complex - seismic and 3D electromagnetic prospecting, shallow electromagnetic prospecting sTEM - allows to create the most reliable and consistent model of the section in the depth range from the first meters to the basement surface. The use of an optimal set of exploration methods allows reducing costs at the stages of exploration and development of hydrocarbon deposits by minimizing the percentage of dry drilling, solving water supply issues (reservoir pressure maintenance systems), etc.
