General description

Overview of Challenge

5

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

Shut-in wells or other assets that are non-operational for a period of time can quickly be engulfed by local populations as the urban area sprawls, typically as a slum.  If we later wish to operate this well, our access has been lost and it can be difficult to move people out of the area.

6

Thematic information requirements

4. Obtain detailed land-use information,

7

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

If we can identify these encroachments as soon as they happen, we can act quickly to deter people and therefore retain access to our assets.

8

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

On the ground surveys, together with historical well data.  However this can often be inaccurate.  Ground surveys are often difficult to conduct through slum areas, and where infrastructure has become fully engulfed.

9

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

Very high to medium resolution EO data.

 

Resolution depends 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
