Pinnacle uses tiltmeters, InSAR and GPS to monitor reservoirs and surface map subsidence. Together, the technologies are uniquely able to provide extremely high spatial and temporal resolution of ground motion.
Reservoir monitoring involves installing an array of tiltmeters and GPS receivers over the zone to be mapped. The array can consist of any combination of continuously recording surface and downhole tiltmeters and GPS units. The data can be sent in real-time via wire or radio to another location for immediate analysis, or the data can be collected and analyzed periodically.
