Provided is a method of measuring a change in the density of an underground material. To measure the change in the density of the underground material, a borehole is installed above a target underground material and a first gravimeter and a second gravimeter are installed outside and inside of the borehole, respectively. Sequentially, a change in the density of the target underground material is calculated based on a first gravitational change and a second gravitational change measured using the first gravimeter and the second gravimeter. According to the method, it is possible to precisely measure the change in the density of the target underground material, such as an oil, a gas, etc., stored in an underground reservoir and carbon dioxide injected into an underground storage.

Provided is elastic reverse-time migration system and method using an absolute value function for improving the quality of subsurface structure images, and more particularly, elastic reverse-time migration system and method using an absolute value function for improving the quality of subsurface structure images capable of minimizing waveform changing by separating wavefields using stress-displacement relationships and improving accuracy of the subsurface structure images by applying the absolute value function to migration images.


Provided is a method for improving injectivity of an underground gas storage layer. The method for the injectivity of the underground gas storage layer includes performing a process of injecting a reducing agent for reducing irreducible water saturation of the storage layer through a wellbore connected up to the underground gas storage layer composed of a water-permeable rock material and performing a process of injecting carbon dioxide into the storage layer after the reducing agent is injected. Since the carbon dioxide is injected, the reducing agent and water, which are filled into a pore of the storage layer, are discharged together to reduce the irreducible water saturation around the wellbore, thereby improving the carbon dioxide injectivity of the storage layer. The reducing agent may include a surfactant or a material that is miscible with all of the carbon dioxide and the water.
