Innovators in the hydraulic fracturing space to highlight technological advances at upcoming SPE conference.
MicroSeismic CEO Peter Duncan believes operators are just learning the true mysteries of the U.S. unconventional play subsurface.
Peter Duncan, president and CEO, MicroSeismic describes a few key takeaways from the week.
Using MicroSeismic, Inc.’s proprietary Completions Engineering workflows and new real-time drainage visualizer, the industry now has access to an effective tool to customize the treatment design for every stage in real-time to achieve optimum stimulation and recovery.
Case Study – Microseismic analysis for a horizontal well completed in the San Andres was used to understand wellbore density for highest capital efficiency.
Using Automatic Moment Tensor Inversion (Auto-MTI), the dynamics of the rock failure are captured in real-time as the fracture events are detected. The moment tensors provide a rich source of information about the geometry of fractures and the stresses that produced them.
Case Study - Validating reservoir simulation results from microseismic monitoring to determine vertical wellbore spacing for large independent.
