WP 1 - Measurement of ground movement
The objective of WP1 is to develop and test novel technologies that will be used to acquire high-accuracy and cost-efficient surface motion data due to injection; and to provide realistic geomechanical boundary conditions as inputs for other WPs.
Sampling and injection operation will be carried out using an equipped research ship ( (Courtesy GEOMAR))
We will acquire data, analyze and demonstrate uplift or subsidence patterns at ground surface or at seafloor as a result of injection or production. This will be carried out for onshore and offshore cases. SENSE considers three candidate test sites of Hontomín-Spain, UK onshore, Bay of Mecklenburger-Germany, and two case studies for utilizing available data; Troll Field and the Gulf of Mexico.
At the test sites, we will use recently developed technologies to measure seafloor movement through onshore/offshore campaigns including InSAR solutions, geodetic measurements with transponders, repeat surveys with remote operated vehicle (ROV) or autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV), high-precision pressure sensors and fiber optic strain cables.
