Workshop Description

Remote Sensing imagery has been traditionally used in O&G exploration for structural and geological mapping. Today satellite images cover large swath, reach 30 cm resolution for optical images and submetric resolution for radar images, contain visible and infrared channels for surface vegetation and mineral identification; Terabytes of new Landsat and Sentinel data are freely available every single day.  The huge flow of data opens new opportunities and new applications for exploration domain selection, production monitoring and environment monitoring.

Other systems such as Lidar systems may be used to measure Digital Terrain Model (DSM, i.e. ground topography), or detect and identify gases also with exploration and environment applications.

The objective of this workshop is to present case studies and R&D projects on the applications of Remote Sensing in O&G:
Geological mapping, surface characterization and mapping, surface mapping for hydrocarbon prospecting;
Production and environment monitoring;
Surface deformation;
Surface hydrocarbon detection , seeps detection and mapping;
Hyperspectral imaging and processing;
Big data: processing and interpretation of large time series for exploration, production and environment;
Remote sensing in the exploration workflow.
