A Trusted Lifetime Partner for Carbon Storage Surveillance

Achieve total subsurface insight with a comprehensive mapping and surveillance toolbox from a trusted name in geophysics to enable safe, efficient, and cost-effective monitoring for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) sites.

The Ultimate Carbon Storage Toolkit

Overcome the challenges of carbon storage mapping, monitoring and verification (MMV)  with a comprehensive, versatile suite of tools tailored to your carbon storage needs.

Our flexible 4D geophysical monitoring solutions empower customers to balance their CCS monitoring needs with geophysical and operational obstacles and costs. 

Bringing Cutting-Edge Seismic Acquisition to CCS

TGS is actively testing a variety of cost-effective seismic acquisition and node-based technologies to enhance subsurface imaging efficiencies.

Our Extended High-Resolution (XHR) imaging technology, also known as ultra-high resolution (UHR), can provide accurate subsurface imaging of carbon storage sites for initial site identification and ongoing 4D monitoring. 

Combined with ocean bottom node (OBN)-based solutions, UHR seismic can also provide innovative, repeatable and cost-effective solutions to monitor carbon storage reservoirs.

Improved CCS Subsurface Insight with Advanced Ocean Bottom Node Technology

We are powering the future of carbon sequestration. Our recent collaboration at the Sleipner field utilizes XHR ultra-high-resolution seismic imaging technology combined with ocean bottom nodes to vividly image the saline aquifer of the Utsira Formation on Sleipner East and the CO2 stored within.

DAS least-squares joint imaging of multiples and primaries (synthetic example SEAM 1 model). When utilizing sea surface down-going multiples the imaging area around a vertical optical fiber increases (5 km radius here). Local geology determines area imaged, in most cases, it will image the area of a CO2 plume after 25-year injection. Click on the image to enlarge.

DAS / VSP: Leveraging Fiber Optic Technology

TGS seismic imaging supports cost-effective 4D CO2 “in well” or "on seafloor” fibre optic monitoring solutions (DAS-VSP). The resultant time-staggered datasets can cover the 4D needs for the injected CO2 plume for two decades or more, reducing the cost of the overall monitoring program.
