General description

Overview of Challenge

5

What is the nature of the challenge? (What is not adequately addressed at present?)

Selecting an appropriate development site for an onshore facility is a complex task.  The site needs to be accessible, safe, connect to local O&G infrastructure (if any) and have limited impact on the environment.

6

Thematic information requirements

1. Obtain detailed topographic information,  3. Obtain detailed vegetation information,  4. Obtain detailed land-use information,  5. Identify location and condition of transport infrastructure,     9. Obtain detailed imagery of assets,   11. Determine li

7

Nature of the challenge - What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Reduction in planning costs and potentially better located facilities, thereby (potentially) reducing opex, improving HSE etc.

8

What do you currently do to address this challenge?/ How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

existing mapping and recorded data, but this rarely is sufficient

9

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

Very high to medium resolution EO data  to derive land cover and land use information.   

Resolution depending on covered area and size of analysis objective.

10

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need? – are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

EO could be a useful complimentary technology
