Utilising seismic for CCUS applications can:

Utilising seismic for CCUS applications can:

  • Significantly improve knowledge of the subsurface, giving more confidence to project investment
  • Help assure projects are sanctioned by supporting the permitting process; Property and Mineral Rights, HSE, Permanence, Resource Management
  • De-risk “pre-drill” decision-making during the exploration phase
  • Effectively monitor the subsurface during injection and post-injection to avoid loss of integrity
  • Improve the overall safety, compliance, and efficiency of CCUS operations
  • Help companies adhere to in-country regulations, such as “US UIC Class VI Rule”
  • Help to secure tax incentives, such as “IRS 45Q” in the US

Surveys we can enable

Scouting (regional 2D)

Scouting (regional 2D)

Survey-based around varying geometry of 2D receiver lines. An economical choice to scout and explore prospective areas for potential CCUS projects, or to gain further knowledge on a site already identified as a potential CCUS site.
Baseline (HD 3D – subsurface characterisation)

Baseline (HD 3D – subsurface characterisation)

A high-density 3D survey, normally acquired pre-drill to characterise the subsurface of the potential CCUS site. Knowledge gained supports de-risking of future project phases (drilling, injection, etc) mitigating against HSE risks, well failures and cost overruns.
Monitoring (plume tracking)

Monitoring (plume tracking)

Various economical and long-term solutions to monitor the CCUS site. Predominantly for tracking the CO2 plume in the subsurface. Options are adaptable to local regulations and budgetary limits; semi-permanent arrays, radial lines, coarse 3D survey, etc.
Monitoring (seismicity)

Monitoring (seismicity)

Dependent on local regulation and stakeholder needs various levels of seismicity monitoring may be required. Options can range from several nodes to hundreds to assist in detecting and locating subsurface seismicity.
Baseline repeat (+3-5 years post-injection)

Baseline repeat (+3-5 years post-injection)

Similar to the baseline 3D survey, over time repeat 3D surveys may be required to analyse the ongoing or completed CCUS project. This can also support the expansion of the CCUS project into neighbouring areas and/or support the plan for the field’s life cycle.

How we do it

As the creators of the world’s smallest and lightest seismic receiver node, STRYDE makes seismic accessible to all industries by reducing costs and logistical requirements, minimising HSE risk and environmental footprint and allowing seismic to be acquired in urban and environmentally restricted areas.

Our collaboration with STRYDE and CMC is changing the game for subsurface imaging in support of CCUS, and we are proud to have broken a world record for trace density. We are delighted with the performance of STRYDE's nimble nodes. The agility and cost-efficiency of these systems are driving a step-change in imagine the subsurface and sets a new benchmark for what can be achieved for CCUS.

How seismic can be used in CCUS applications:

Affordable and low-risk seismic solutions for efficient CCUS exploration and monitoring

During exploration:

  • Scouting (2D and pseudo-3D surveys) - regional scouting to identify and grade potential sites for CCUS projects
  • High-density 3D surveys - for baseline/pre-drill, monitoring/repeat baseline, allowing companies to achieve a “gold standard” for permitting and regulation compliance
  • A 3D seismic survey is not a mandatory requirement that is prescribed in regulations but is best practice for accessing a clear image of the subsurface
  • Demonstrate to the regulator and key stakeholders that the storage of CO2 in the subsurface is safe and the seal, reservoir, and overburden are not compromised

During operations (monitoring)

  • Assure a long-term monitoring plan is in place to reduce risk, operate safely and in line with the project objectives
  • Provide evidence to the regulators demonstrating your commitment to safety integrity assurance
  • Obtain the most accurate large-scale method (seismic) to track the CO2 plume in the subsurface
  • Comply with seismicity monitoring requirements in specific regions and environments that mandate this

So, why choose STRYDE to deliver your seismic needs?

De-risk projects and minimise environmental footprint

De-risk projects and minimise environmental footprint

Rely on an experienced team to navigate through regulations and benefit from smaller, lighter equipment that requires fewer deployment resources and minimal requirements for line clearance, resulting in less impact on the environment and helping assure surveys are supported and sanctioned by landowners.
