As a result of continental-continental collisions in the Eastern Anatolia region, shortening in the N-S direction and thickening of the crust are observed. As a result of this crustal thickening, the drilling costs of potential oil and geothermal studies in the region are more costly. Therefore, the more the area can be narrowed in these studies, the more savings can be made. Within the scope of this study, the region of Oltu and its surroundings was evaluated with satellite-based Bouguer gravity data. By evaluating the satellite-based Bouguer gravity data, the areas with density changes in the underground in the region were determined. Thus, it will be investigated whether these are caused by geothermal resources or by oil or by an intrusion. Firstly, the tensors of the Bouguer gravity data were calculated and then the gravity tensor invariant was obtained. When the findings obtained as a result of the study are analysed, maximum values are found in the invariant map in Oltu and its surroundings, especially near Olur Thermal facility and Köprüköy Deliçermik hot spot. In Esendal village, which is located in the N-NW of Yusufeli, it was seen in the reports of MTA that geothermal drilling was carried out and maximum values were encountered here in our results. In the future geothermal studies planned for Artvin or for this region, this method can be applied first to determine whether there is potential or not. In addition, these studies can be carried out with less cost by narrowing the area studied. Increasing geothermal facilities for the region will contribute to making it a very important regional attraction centre in terms of tourism.
