JOGMEC awards contract on the “Detection of Ground Deformation due to Oil Production through Satellite InSAR Analysis” to TRE

(March 2013)

TRE is pleased to announce that they have been awarded the contract to provide JOGMEC with a historical ground movement analysis using InSAR technology to identify surface deformation caused by oil production activities.

This is the first project TRE will carry out for JOGMEC, which has a longstanding commitment to risk prevention and performance maintenance, exploring among innovative solutions and advanced technologies.


Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC) was established on 29th February 2004, for integrating the functions of the former Japan National Oil Corporation and Metal Mining Agency of Japan.

JOGMEC’s activities include financial assistance, technology development and technical support, stockpiling, mine pollution control and overseas field surveys.

About TRE

Tele-Rilevamento Europa (TRE) is the world leader in ground deformation monitoring services with InSAR technology.

Founded in 2000, TRE is the first of a number of successful spin-off companies from the Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI) technical University.

TRE measures ground deformation to millimetre accuracy by analysing SAR (Synthetic Aperture radar) satellite images with its latest algorithm: SqueeSAR™ – a unique tool for detecting, measuring and monitoring geophysical phenomena such as: subsidence, uplift, landslides, seismic faults, etc. and verifying the stability of individual structures. Maps of surface deformation provide a quantitative understanding of ground response to both natural and anthropogenic activities.

TRE’s has two offices: Milan and Vancouver.
