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. One key consideration is the ability and cost of tying a facility into existing O&G infrastructure.  Technology to include this in the early planning stage would be very useful.

6

Thematic information requirements

4. Obtain detailed land-use information,  5. Identify location and condition of transport infrastructure,     9. Obtain detailed imagery of assets,    12. Identify the presence of sub-surface or covered infrastructure,

7

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

To make the planning of facility infrastructure  more efficient would reduce planning costs.

8

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

Existing mapping, although this often lacks sufficient detail

9

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

Very high to medium resolution EO data for infrastructure monitoring.

 

 

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
