Geophysics for an Energy Transition

In this article I review a number of subject areas including exploration and development for geothermal heat/power, lithium resources as well as Inland LNG and carbon capture and storage. The geophysical applications and techniques used for these projects are discussed as well as the challenges that exist bringing these energy sources to maturity.

Seismic reflection is a valuable geophysical tool for accurate and cost-effective imaging of coal seams and is of significant importance to the economics of coal mining in Australia. However, the desire to locate and characterise increasingly subtle structures and lithological features continues to drive research into alternative seismic technologies, including multi-component seismology.

Geophysical Methods

Geophysical techniques work through applying one of several types of force to the ground, to measure the resulting energy with use of geophysical equipment and infer the geology from this. Geophysics is generally much quicker than the aforementioned methods, however, requires more data processing (office-based work) to develop the geological picture.
