3 3 Land Subsidence Land subsidence is a gradual settling or sudden sinking of the earth's surface with or without horizontal movement Man-made Subsidence Occurs mainly due to Mining activities Mining activities Underground construction activities Underground construction activities Extraction of natural resources like water/gas/oil Extraction of natural resources like water/gas/oil

4 4 Mechanism of Land Subsidence due to Gas Extraction  Weight of overlying sediments partially supported by soil matrix and partially by gas/oil present in pores.  Pressure p declines, and overburden load transferred to soil matrix.  Compaction takes place if soil is compressible  Bowl-shaped depression appears with large displacement at centre.

5 5 Effects of Land Subsidence Effects of Land Subsidence Changes in Elevation and Slope of Canals, Drains, Pipe lines etc Changes in Elevation and Slope of Canals, Drains, Pipe lines etc Damage to Infrastructure Damage to Infrastructure Failure of Well Casings Failure of Well Casings Water Intrusion in Coastal Areas Water Intrusion in Coastal Areas Reduction in Permeability, Loss of Hydrocarbon Reduction in Permeability, Loss of Hydrocarbon productivity productivity Fault Reactivation Resulting in Seismic Activity Fault Reactivation Resulting in Seismic Activity Development of Fissures and Sinkholes Development of Fissures and Sinkholes Even Settlement rarely causes any problems but uneven settlement creates problems

6 6 Objectives of the Study  Use of GPS technique to monitor subsidence using a case study near Olpad Region, Surat, Gujarat  To identify and study effects of parameters responsible for land subsidence, like, pressure depletion, gas extraction, water level, Uniaxial Compaction Coefficient, Reservoir dimensions  Calculation of Uniaxial Compaction Coefficient

IGS stations tightly constrained, to get coordinates of all the four reference stations and IITB permanent reference station. Coordinates of all 27-deformation stations were processed with two reference stations and IITB station by tightly constraining them.

Pressure: 2290 kN/m 2 at NSA4 Min. Pressure : 2034 kN/m 2 at NSA2 Av. pressure of the reservoir: 2105 kN /m 2 Max Pressure: 1336 kN/m 2 at NSA2 Min. Pressure: 989 kN/m 2 at NSA1 Av. pressure of the reservoir: 1098 kN/m 2

13 13 Relation Between Gas Extraction and Pressure Depletion Months Cumulative Gas Extraction (m 3 ) Average Gas Pressure (kN/m 2 ) May December May December May December June Linear relation Between Gas Extraction & Average Pressure Pressure is Depleting Continuously with increase in Cumulative Gas Extraction

14 14 Relation between Cumulative Effective Subsidence & Cumulative Gas Extraction Gas Extraction is the major cause of Subsidence over the Study area Correlation Coefficient is Found to be High 0.83 Linear Relationship is observed to be Suitable with Regression Analysis CampaignsCumulative Gas Extraction (m 3 ) from four gas wells Average Effective Subsidence (∆s) for four stations May.04 - Oct E May.04 - Feb E+072 May.04 - May E May.04 - Octo.051.3E May.04 - Jan E May.04 - Mar E May.04 - May E May.04 - Oct E May.04 - Jan E May.04 - Mar.072.7E+08-91

16 16 Estimation of Uniaxial Compaction Coefficient (C m ) Laboratory Measured C m C m = 2.7E-05 m 2 /kN Where, Modulus of Elasticity (E) =2.5E04 kN/m 2 (Laboratory Measured) And Poisson’s Ratio ( υ) = 0.33 Laboratory Measured C m Value usually overestimated Subsidence = C m H Δp Subsidence = 953 mm For (Δp = 905 kN/m 2, H=39 m) Subsidence Very High Compared to Measured Subsidence (86 mm)

17 17 Average C m for Four Wells ∆s = (-1.84E-06) (∆p * H) R = 0.73 C m values Ranging from 1.27E-06 m 2 /kN to 3.70E-06 m 2 /kN Average C m Value is 1.84E-06 m 2 /kN C m = 1.84E-06 m 2 /kN For Barbara Field, Field Measured C m Values were 2 x to 5 x m 2 /kN Laboratory Measured C m values ranging from 1 x to 5 x m 2 /kN Laboratory Measured C m is more than ten times to Field Measured C m with GPS

18 18 Subsidence Prediction based on C m Calculated using Nucleus of Strain Method (Geertsma, 1978) (Assuming Reservoir Compaction ≠ Subsidence) Subsidence at the Centre of the Reservoir Value of ‘A’ depends on two Dimensionless ratios η=D/R and ρ = r/R D is the Depth of Burial (175 m), R is radius of Reservoir (2500 m), r is the distance of point from centre of the Reservoir (r=0) This C m value used to predict subsidence from time to time over this reservoir

19 19  Effective subsidence over the study area was 86 mm during February 2004 to March 2007 within reservoir boundary  Subsidence is directly related to the amount of gas extracted and resulting pressure. A linear relationships are observed between:  Cumulative gas extraction and average reservoir pressure (R =0.99)  Subsidence and gas extraction ( R = 0.83)  subsidence and pressure depletion ( R = to 0.82)  The average compaction coefficient C determined from GPS studies (assuming subsidence = compaction) is found to be 1.84E-06 m 2 /kN.  The average compaction coefficient C m determined from GPS studies (assuming subsidence = compaction) is found to be 1.84E-06 m 2 /kN.  Subsidence prediction based on field measured is more acceptable than the laboratory measured uniaxial compaction coefficient, as it is always higher by one order of magnitude than the actual measured subsidence in the field.   Estimating C m (assuming subsidence = compaction) based on GPS measured parameters and Nucleus of Strain Method is found to be 1.95E- 06 m 2 /kN.
