Microseismic to CCS is what seismic to E&P?
Backdrop - carbon capture sequestration (CCS) is emerging as high-impact opportunity for geologists to horn their skills.
Recently I heard the pitch from Microseismic Inc (Duncan) that permanent life-of-field EM + seismic array is prime for CCS, e.g., monitoring and tracking where the carbon plumes are at all times.
Premise (as I understand) -
1) Electrical impedance change > Δ seismic impedance in CCS (more CO2)
2) Increase with moisture absorption (in general from literature search*)
Q1: how do we think about this - another inversion problem for geoscientists to tackle?
Q2: can we put ChatGPT to good use - more powerful search and discovery to distill a shortlist of most favorable CCS spots?
Love to hear your thoughts.
