MicroSeismic, Inc. is as an oilfield services company providing real-time monitoring and mapping of hydraulic fracture operations in unconventional oil and gas plays.
Founded in 2003, our seismic imaging firm in Houston, Texas pioneered the use of surface microseismic monitoring to listen to the naturally occurring, low-energy seismic noise emitted from a reservoir during hydraulic fracturing stimulation. Utilizing surface and near-surface arrays, MicroSeismic helps oil and gas companies understand how the reservoir responds to stimulation and its impact on customer economics.
Surface Monitoring—Accurate Results in Real-Time MicroSeismic, Inc. has quickly grown to become the technology leader in surface microseismic monitoring across the world. Our services help customers:
- Optimize well completions
- Determine well spacing and plan field development
- Enhance proven reserves and ultimate recovery estimates
Groundbreaking Technology. Proven Expertise.
"Their experience and technology will allow us to properly monitor the seismic activity and bring economic growth to Lancashire," said Mark Miller, CEO of Cuadrilla Resources, Ltd.
With more than 15,000 stages monitored, 800 sq. miles of permanently deployed BuriedArray™ microseismic data acquisition arrays, and work spanning 11 countries, MicroSeismic, Inc. has both pioneered and proven the successful application of surface microseismic monitoring across the world. From hydraulic fracture mapping, to seismicity monitoring and reservoir monitoring, our passive monitoring services and advanced analysis are unmatched in the marketplace.
Our surface and near-surface geophone arrays monitor microseismic events in real time, providing viable access to unconventional gas shale plays in ways that conventional monitoring methods cannot. Our mapping and analysis expertise allow us to take the raw microseismic data obtained from these arrays to produce real-time, 3-D structural imaging of reservoirs based on naturally occurring sound sources. Our technology enables seismic exploration in places that are difficult to reach or environmentally sensitive, and is allowing unconventional gas shale plays to quickly become reliable, and economically attractive, sources of energy.
