General description

Overview of Challenge

5

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

O&G operations can have both a positive and negative impact on the local populous.  The social aspect of this development can be difficult to track or measure.  This may include changes in land use, population density, the displacement of  communities/ tribes, etc.

6

Thematic information requirements

4. Obtain detailed land-use information,           14. Obtain detailed imagery of the surface,

7

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

Monitoring the social implications of our operations allows us to highlight areas of success and improvement.  We hope this will allow us to access greater reserves as we can more clearly articulate the benefits of our operations to future licence holders

8

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

Looking at changes against base-line maps.  However, base-line maps are often insufficient in detail or date.

9

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

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

 

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?
