Oil Inverse Modeling

Developed by OilFinder, Oil Inverse Modeling identifies the origin of oil seeps on the seafloor, using the position of the seep detected by satellite on the sea surface. In regions of deep water and of complex oceanic circulation, most of the seeps identified on the sea surface are dozens of kilometers far from their origin at the seafloor. This way, Inverse Modeling delivers more precise and correct information, being the best technology for the study of seeps.Developed by OilFinder, Oil Inverse Modeling identifies the origin of oil seeps on the seafloor, using the position of the seep detected by satellite on the sea surface.

Hydrodynamic Modeling

  • modelagem-hidro
  • Hydrodynamic Modeling rebuilds the 4D oceanic circulation of a region. This technology is very useful to understand the displacements of water and other elements such as natural escapes of oil (oil seepages) or oil spills. Our models assimilate meteo-ocean data obtained by satellites to provide results closer to what really happens in the ocean.

Remote Sensing

  • sensoriamento
  • Using SAR images we identify oil features on the sea surface and then we classify them into spills or seeps from active petroleum systems. Our team has more than 12 years of experience in this type of work, including in-situ validation about the nature of the oil feature (spill or seep).

    We also process meteo-oceanographic data (wind, sea surface height, chlorophyll concentration, sea surface temperature, etc.), obtained by other satellites to:

    –          Assimilate data into the hydrodynamic models to make them closer to reality;

    –          Interpret SAR images, enabling the identification of false targets (features that look like oil but are not oil).Using SAR images we identify oil features on the sea surface and then we classify them into spills or seeps from active petroleum systems.
