General description

Overview of Challenge

5

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

Getting a snap shot of our stored hydrocarbon volumes, if this storage is geographically widespread and there is no  internal level monitoring (through faults or the fact that it was never installed), is incredibly difficult.

We have ways of doing this using standard process equipment such as flowmeters or level control systems, but any additional verification measure, if cost effective, is always a good thing.

Thematic information requirements

1. Obtain detailed topographic information,        9. Obtain detailed imagery of assets,

7

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

Being able to track the changes in our reservoir storage, in combination with other readings (e.g. flowmeters, level control systems, etc.) could enable us to identify faults or errors in equipment, identify (earlier than before) leaks that may cause dama
