Description

Unlocking the Potential of Microseismic Data: Key Concepts, Pitfalls, and Best Practices

Microseismic and induced-seismic monitoring are key technologies to understand and manage unconventional plays. Locations of microseismic events can be used to map zones of influence around stimulations. These events are also full of information about the local rock conditions which can be leveraged to understand how the reservoir behaves. Through understanding fundamental concepts of earthquake seismology, the clouds of event locations and their attributes can be used to obtain images of how well different regions of the reservoir are stimulated. The lessons learned throughout this process, if done properly, provide insight for better future completion designs.

In this workshop, participants will be exposed to the fundamental concepts of passive seismic acquisition, processing, and interpretation in unconventional reservoirs through an interactive platform. This platform is designed to enhance the participants intuitive knowledge of concepts, pitfalls, and best practices associated with this technology.




Learning outcomes:

✓ Effect of array geometry on resolving microseismic locations
✓ Choosing the correct instrumentation to minimize systematic biases in seismic event attributes (i.e., dimensions, magnitude, energy, etc.)
✓ Calibrating arrays and velocity models to optimize accuracy
✓ Hands-on experience with quality control of processing workflows
✓ Best practices in the art of interpreting microseismic data
✓ Constructing discrete fracture networks to constrain frac and geomechanical models




Who should attend:

The course is open to O&G geoscientists and engineers who are seeking to understand the underlying concepts related to microseismic and induced seismicity, enabling them to make informed decisions when it comes to monitoring.

Participants will receive 8 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credit.
