Project Summary

Using offshore reservoirs for CO2 storage presents unique seismic monitoring challenges, for deploying, recovering and reading ocean-bottom seismometers. The project plans to develop protocols/technologies that test deployment and recovery of seismometers as well as establish robust seismicity benchmarks.  In the pre-commercialisation stage of a CCS project, these deliverables will establish seismic monitoring workflows in the operational phase. In addition a workflow will be developed for inverting travel times for 3D velocity models and relocating earthquakes with the capability of refining locations and models routinely with minimum expert knowledge.
