 Management of surface impacts due to ground deformation from operations

 

Challenge ID:

HCP-3203

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Management of surface impacts due to ground deformation from operations.

Theme:

ON 3.2: Subsidence monitoring - Infrastructure monitoring

Consortium Lead:

C-CORE

Interviewed Company:

C-CORE

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Need to support production management related to surface deformation and subsequent impacts on infrastructure (boreholes, buildings, road networks, etc).

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Increased health and safety risks due to building or transporation network failures .

Thematic information requirements:

Surface motion (horizontal and vertical)

Distribution and status of infrastructure

Topographic information

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Field surveys; typically using GPS.

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

InSAR

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

InSAR is expensive for ongoing operations. If an area overlaps with other operators cost-sharing of services can occur. L-band SAR for deformation mapping (longer wavelength). Address issue of temporal de-correlation, which means PS or target installation
