It has been a busy time for the local chapter! The major accomplishment was the SPE Western Regional Meeting.
The 2 ½ day event held at the Bakersfield Marriot from April 26 to April 28th had a large turnout.
Thank you to the volunteers who tirelessly supported the organization and execution of the meeting.
The next Western Regional Meeting in 2023 will be held in Alaska with more details to come later in the year.

Satellite Base InSAR for Ground Displacement Measurement

Abstract:  In the San Joaquin Valley and elsewhere, InSAR data is used to optimize injection/production volumes, assess horizontal well conformance, assess tectonic and seismicity risks and detect and predict mechanical well failures. Courtney’s talk will provide attendees with an overview of the InSAR technology, relevant case studies and applications as well as insights on the future of SAR technology. 

Speaker Bio:  Courtney Lucente is an experienced Geologist (P.Geol) with over 10 years of resource industry experience, primarily focused on heavy oil and geomechanics in Northern Alberta, Canada. Through this work she has gained extensive experience as a user and interpreter of InSAR data. From 2015 – 2019 She was the technical lead of several geomechanical and reservoir characterization projects which utilized InSAR alongside a wide range of multidisciplinary datasets and took part in oil and gas industry consortia focused on InSAR, geomechanics and caprock integrity. In addition to her role as a GIS and Data Analyst at TRE Altamira, she has just completed her M.Sc in Hydrogeology, where her dissertation focused on generating novel methods for InSAR to be used to characterize ground deformation in Central California.
