4D Microseismic – Interpreting microseismic data for engineering integration
The microseismic survey conducted during hydraulic fracture stimulation is a geophysical measurement of an engineering process. As an industry, we have focused our efforts on understanding and improving the geophysics of the measurement but all too often we fall short on the last step, the translation of the geophysics into information that the engineers can use in their assessment of frac performance. This talk focuses on the types of information that the completions engineers would like to derive from microseismic surveys, understanding the underlying assumptions in the microseismic catalog, and finally, linking the microseismic data to the engineering data through the natural time-lapse nature of both data types. linking the microseismic data to the engineering data through the natural time-lapse nature of both data types.
