A Use Case of Oilfield Monitoring


Synspective’s satellite data solution service, Land Displacement Monitoring (LDM), enables continuous monitoring of the ground surface and comprehensive understanding of geophysical risks such as landslides. Using the LDM service, we analyzed ground movements at the Tengiz oilfield in Kazakhstan’s low-lying wetlands.


Satellites make it possible to regularly monitor and assess ground changes over time in the oilfields.  It is also possible to estimate oil and gas production by combining it with past oil production, which can be used for predicting future oil prices.


Analyzing satellite images for approximately two years and detecting time-series ground movements, it was shown that there was an inclination of subsidence over a wide area of ​​the mining area.
