Our satellite InSAR solutions offer clients intelligence by providing insight into the location, extent, magnitude and evolution of surface deformation, increasing knowledge to improve decision making and reduce risk.
We provide cutting-edge satellite InSAR solutions that address a wide variety of challenges encountered by a diverse range of clients, including oil and gas operators, mine operators and regulators, geothermal operators, energy companies, engineering firms, niche consultancies, public bodies, government departments, local authorities and insurers.
As a direct measure of the surface deformation impacts of surface and sub-surface activity, our solutions reduce operational risk with respect to health and safety, environmental impact, hazard mapping, risk assessment and legal compliance. As an indirect measure of sub-surface conditions, our solutions support improved planning and optimal resource management.
Operational links to complementary solutions within CGG and beyond means we are uniquely positioned to develop and implement integrated services to address broader client requirements and challenges.
Our team of expert geoscientists have been at the forefront of the development, design and provision of satellite InSAR solutions since 1995. From deserts to major cities, our solutions are used to study surface deformation resulting from natural and anthropogenic activities in diverse operational environments.
Understanding the unique requirements of a project is essential to implementing an appropriate satellite InSAR solution, and transparency on the capabilities and limitations of InSAR technology is central to our philosophy. We work closely with clients to understand their project requirements, which ensures that we implement solutions that are 'fit-for-purpose' based on the optimal combination of radar image parameters (wavelength, resolution, temporal frequency, viewing geometries etc.), site environmental characteristics (ground cover, climate etc.) and processing approach.
We use radar images acquired by the entire family of past and present radar satellites, including: ERS-1 & -2, Envisat, RADARSAT-1 & -2, JERS-1, ALOS PALSAR, ALOS-2, TerraSAR-X, COSMO-SkyMed and Sentinel-1A. Our status as a global, independent supplier of satellite imagery guarantees the impartial selection of the most appropriate radar imagery within a project.
Our cutting-edge InSAR processing capabilities include:
Our commitment to innovation is reflected by our involvement in internal and external research and development programmes aimed at advancing processing techniques and the development of new solutions. As a globally recognised centre of excellence for satellite InSAR we provide training and consultancy services to clients across the world.
Petroleum geomechanics is the branch of engineering dealing with the mechanical properties and behavior of geological formations which influence the exploration, development, and production of oil and gas.
