Webinar | 2012 | September | Understanding Microseismic Positional Uncertainty

Microseismic event location or position resolution and uncertainty remains one of the most critical aspects of passive seismic for the user community. Understanding the inherent capabilities, limitations and drivers for event locations from downhole, surface and near-surface microseismic acquisition geometries is required to have confidence with ‘beyond the dots’ microseismic applications such as hydrofracture length, height and stimulated rock volume calculations. In this webinar, these capabilities, limitations and drivers are reviewed for both the downhole and the surface acquisition methods.
