Oil & Gas
Our ground motion surface deformation surveys support a variety of oil and gas applications:
- Identification of surface deformation due to fluid extraction or injection
- Inputs to calibrate reservoir modelling and management
- Identification of areas of fault reactivation
- Risk mitigation: Identification of deformation areas affecting wells
Within the United Kingdom, for example, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) requires that appropriate baseline surveys are performed before oil and gas operations commence. Monitoring strategies are required for continued earth surface monitoring to reduce the risk of environmental hazards and induced seismicity. We provide cost effective solutions to operators to support compliance with such regulations.
