Do you want to answer any of the following questions? Ask Seismik!
Are there earthqaukes near our well or in the area where we plan an operation?
How strong are the seismic events recorded?
What is the location of these seismic events? What are the uncertainties of these locations?
We are not sure whether this seismic activity was natural, triggered or induced. Can you help us?
Was there any seismic activity in the area preceding the installation of local stations?
We have doubts about the earthquake locations provided by the national geological survey. Can you check it?
We do not understand the downhole monitoring results provided. Can you check it and help us to interpret the data?
We are going to drill in a specific area. How should a network for a cost-effective seismic monitoring look like?
Can you estimate a possible maximum magnitude of an earthquake induced by our injection?
We really don't want to cause any felt earthquakes by the hydraulic fracturing. Is it possible to avoid it by using a real-time monitoring?
Can you monitor a specified area and find out if there are any seismically active structures?
We would like to learn more about seismicity in the vicinity of oil/gas reservoirs. Do you offer any course in microseismic monitoring? Can you offer such a course in our company to suit our specific needs?
Our expertise includes:
Analysis of earthquakes close to your reservoirs from publicly available or private networks is our "bread and butter". We improve USGS locations, calculate mechanisms for small events, and improve detections for very small events. We provide specialty research applied to exploration areas without information on local stress orientation (source mechanisms of local tectonic events), or detections of active faults which are likely conductive for fluids (relative locations of local tectonic events).
Re-processing of downhole data includes finding source mechanisms from downhole data (and relative locations), general reprocessing of downhole data if results are difficult to interpret or not trustworthy. We reprocess results and target specific questions - e.g. an uncertainty in a velocity model, an orientation of tools, etc. The added value we offer - source mechanisms from multiple wells / a computation of the shear solution and a fault plane variability from a single well is to to provide an information about variations in strikes of the fracture network for reservoir modeling.
Designing an optimal network of your seismic stations both on the surface and in the wells may be achieved with the Seismik special software and a solution called NetDesign.
A near real-time monitoring of a potential (induced) seismicity may be provided with the SafeFrac system. This service and the solution created by Seismik can make your water injection or a hydraulic fracturing safe. Data are uploaded from monitoring stations to the secure server and are being processed within several minutes.
