The Hydrographic Society of America - Houston Chapter's October Technical Meeting
Location: Texas T Tavern, 1535 Brittmoore Rd, Houston, TX 77043
Speaker: Paul Hatchell (Shell)
Topic: Monitoring Seafloor Deformations
Meal & Refreshments: Looking for sponsors!
Deformation data are useful to constrain reservoir and geo-mechanical models and for understanding issues related to the stability of wells and seafloor infrastructure. A number of techniques are now available in offshore environments for monitoring seafloor deformations that provide frequent and/or continuous areal measurements of seafloor horizontal and vertical movements. These technologies should be considered as part of any long-term reservoir monitoring for fields with large subsidence or geo-mechanical hazards.
