Monday 22 November

1:00 – 5:00pm

Application of Novel Monitoring Technologies for Storage Cost Reduction

Hear from world leading experts from Curtin University, CSIRO and CO2CRC. Topics include:

  • Optimising SOV sweep parameters
  • Controlling SOV wavefield polarisation
  • Weather effect on SOV repeatability
  • Near Surface variations from surface waves using HWC DAS cable and SOVs
  • Time-lapse processing of continuous SOV data
  • Smart baseline for continuous seismic monitoring
  • Thermal effects on DAS data caused by water injection
  • DAS for Laboratory Measurements of Elastic Properties at Seismic Frequencies
  • PSDM on surface seismic data
  • Application of Pressure Inversion
  • Application of Pressure Tomography
  • Multiphysics model (MOOSE) and earth tides for plume detection

Hybrid Delivery

The workshop will be run as a hybrid workshop.

There will be two physical locations that people can attend to join the Workshop:

  • RACV Resort Torquay
  • The Australian Resources Research Centre (ARRC) Auditorium in Perth. Interactive Map ARRC is Building 613

And of course the third option is delegates can dial in from anywhere in the world to participate
