The Precision Impulse ocean-bottom seismic technology enables rapid, safe, non-obtrusive acquisition of data necessary to monitor stored CO2 in subsea formations.
Our seismic source units remain permanently in place on the ocean floor, providing data of unmatched resolution—without costly deployment of conventional marine seismic vessels, and without the environmental and sea life damage caused by air guns.
WORKING TOWARD NET ZERO
PRECISELY CONTROLLED DETONATION
Precision Impulse possesses international patents relative to precisely controlled detonation—the key scientific breakthrough in its technology.
By making use of this recently discovered phenomenon, Precision Impulse technology is able to produce virtually unlimited impulsive power with excellent timing, repeatability and range of frequency—all with unrivaled energy efficiency.
Dozens of countries around the world have committed to the goal of net zero emissions by 2050
According to the International Energy Agency, energy demand will increase some 45% by 2030.
The energy to satisfy increased demand will have to include a mix of renewables and fossil fuels.
CARBON CAPTURE, UTLIZATION & STORAGE
A Lead Role in the Fight Against Climate Change
CCUS involves the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from fuel transformation or combustion and other industrial activities and its permanent storage deep underground in geological formations. The aim is to prevent the release of large quantities of CO2 into the atmosphere.
IMAGING STORED CO2
Once compressed CO2 is pumped into geological formations under the sea floor, it must be imaged regularly to ensure that it remains in place. The more frequently one can obtain images of the evolving storage mass, the better equipped one is to take corrective action if necessary.
AUDITING STORED CO2
It’s not enough for CCUS actors to promise that C02 is being stored underground. Government authorities and the general public will demand verifiable audits of all stored CO2. Precision Impulse provides subsurface imaging data as frequently as necessary to ensure total confidence in the integrity of any storage area.
“Providing the world with clean, reliable, affordable energy will require nothing less than reimagining energy.”
Compressed CO2 arrives from industrial sources by pipeline or ship to surface pumping stations which send it into the subsurface via existing infrastructure.
Precision Impulse seismic sources and receivers remain permanently installed on the ocean floor, working together to provide vital data about CO2 stored in the subsurface.
Any and all movement or migration of stored CO2 shows up clearly as a result of regular Precision Impulse imaging.
