Determination of verticality of reservoir engineering structure from laser scanner data
Terrestrial laser scanners (TLS) are used nowadays as Geomatics instruments for various applications. One of these applications is 3D survey and management of oil and gas facilities and other engineering structures. This recent attention is due to the fact that laser scanner has the ability to generate massive amounts of high resolution 3D coordinated cloud points from the surface of the structure. A structure may be scanned from several locations and when these scans are registered together, they will provide complete surface coverage. This paper outlines the use of laser scanner as applied in the determination of the verticality of Reservoir Engineering Structure. The results reveal that the Reservoir did not exceed the allowable tolerance.
