Naylor-1 monitoring well. The Otway Project monitoring and verification program includes downhole geophysical and geochemical measurements at Naylor-1.
Geochemical samples and seismic data are processed at the on-site downhole monitoring facility. Fluid samples are then sent to a laboratory for analysis.
Seismic monitoring consists of generating artificial shock waves which propagate through the rock formations and reflect back to receivers where they register as a pressure pulse. These signals are digitised and processed to produce an acoustic image of the subsurface.

Unlikely CO2 seepage in the near surface (soils) will be detected by extracting air from the unsaturated soil zone above the water table.
