Reworking legacy data
Partnering with industry, we applied modern seismic data processing techniques to legacy data. Leveraging existing data with new techniques provides low-cost opportunity to determine the utility of geologic features off the U.S. east coast for long term carbon sequestration.
Advanced techniques highlight storage potential
Prestack waveform inversion provides critical insight allowing us to determine carbon storage viability, even using legacy data. Both sedimentary layers and basaltic rift basins show potential for carbon capture and storage.
Heterogeneous inversion results
Detailed analyses of Mesozoic rife basins show that each basin has its own characteristics. Our advanced methods show that each basin needs to be treated differently with some being more suitable for carbon storage potential.
