Underground Storage of CO2

ASC provides the following services to the energy industry focused on monitoring the effectiveness of underground gas storage operations:

  • Site characterisation of existing active fractures within potential storage reservoirs
  • Design and optimisation of seismic monitoring arrays.
  • Real-time processing of microseismic data to provide feed-back of information to engineers on potential damage to reservoir bounds and cap rock that may affect its confining properties or can map injection paths in a treatment field. Assessment of reservoir integrity and containment effectiveness during injection
  • Post-analysis of reservoir containment effectiveness.
  • Delineation of potential breakthrough and communication with active fault structures.
  • Fracture mapping to provide information on feasibility of target volumes for new development wells.
  • Correlation with predictive numerical models for feedback on future site development
  • In-depth understanding of fracture mechanisms through the integration of acquired data and “Synthetic Rock Mass” models built with Itasca’s Particle Fluid Code (PFC) and site-scale degradation models.
  • Acquisition system-independent seismic processing software for automatic, real-time processing of induced seismicity.
  • Fully-featured microseismic training courses focussed on the principles behind the technology, processing algorithms and hands-on experience of using processing software
