Infrastructure & Hazards

Infrastructure planning is critical. Surface facilities, pipelines and wells need to be placed with awareness of geohazards. Sub-surface hazards threaten well integrity and need to be characterized. Identify otherwise unseen onshore hazards using near-surface surveys and satellite remote sensing. Locate shallow gas pockets offshore, methane hydrates and over-pressured zones by combining broadband seismic imaging and analysis with complementary methods. Assess sub-surface stress with integrated workflows. Support field development decisions with independent reservoir engineering and geomechanical expertise.

Infrastructure & Hazards

Delineate Geohazards, Mitigate Risk

Our GeoConsulting group has expertize in field development optimization and can provide advice on facilities engineering planning & costing. The challenges faced in ensuring field infrastructure integrity stretch from the surface to the reservoir. With a broad portfolio of Geoscience technology and expertise, we can help to characterize hazards so that you can mitigate them.

Onshore, interpreted high-resolution satellite imagery and radar can rapidly identify surface hazards, ground movement and provide baselines for environmental monitoring. Advances in near-surface characterization combining seismic and multi-physics, both airborne and ground-based, provides important benefits for both seismic imaging and for identification of near-surface heterogeneities and hazards such as karsts.

Offshore, the powerful combination of BroadSeis and BroadSource provide full bandwidth data for the high-resolution delineation of shallow hazards and rich low frequencies for FWI and velocity model building. The detailed velocity volumes are a valuable addition which can directly indicate shallow channels and shallow gas.

Digital infrastructure and assets should not be overlooked. Experts from our Data Management Services team can provide the services and technology required to safeguard the stream of data generated during the life of a field, including physical assets such as core and the wide variety of digital E&P data.
