Origin Energy engaged RPS to undertake a High Definition LiDAR survey over a 74km2 seismic survey area in Central Queensland.
The area consisted of uneven ground and was covered by dense vegetation which raised a number of issues for the seismic survey including:
Planning safe routes for the large seismic survey vehicles
Risk of damage to the environment caused by Origin's vehicles and equipment
High cost of field work.
The objective was to deliver field survey accurate terrain and vegetation models to allow Origin to carefully plan the seismic survey prior to commencing any field work.
