Challenge ID:

HCP-1302

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Assess and map forest fire risk and provide situational awareness of fire occurrence.

Theme:

ON 1.3: Seismic Planning - Identification of environmentally sensitive areas

Consortium Lead:

Hatfield

Interviewed Company:

Hatfield

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Need to assess risk of forest fires (natural and man-made) in survey areas during period when crews will be on the ground. Fire information and monitoring is required for situational awareness to ensure that crews can be safely evacuated if needed.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Information is required to manage health and safety risks for survey personnel in an operational setting. There may be uncertainty regarding the need to evacuate or timing of evacuation.

Thematic information requirements:

Distribution and status of infrastructure

Land Cover

Ortho base images

 

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Monitor official bulletins on fires for decision-making. Review the best available information on fire risk.

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

Improved standard approach to forest fire risk modelling. Operational monitoring  of fires during fire season. Daily map updates on fire occurrence in proximity to exploration activities.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

Cloud cover issues for fire detection. Need reliable service and information.
