Title: A Business Case for Seismicity Monitoring | A Decision Framework

Description: The issue of seismicity occurring as a result of oil and gas development activities, especially from hydraulic fracturing, has been a concern for some time. Operators can help minimize the risks by monitoring for seismicity and taking action to mitigate, but the decision as to whether or not to monitor is not always obvious.

We present a framework that could be adapted by industry to help make better and more rigorous decisions about seismicity monitoring.
