Title: Using Depletion-Zone Microseismicity to Understand Producing Volumes | Part 1
Description: Microseismicity is typically used to describe the region around the wellbore directly affected by the hydraulic stimulation. However, when wellbores are treated near offset producing wells, microseismicity can illuminate areas that have already been stimulated and can reveal important details about how the offset wells were treated, where production has occurred, and where hydrocarbons may have been left behind.
In this webcast, we will explain how to use microseismicity occurring on offset producing wells to understand and describe the region around the wellbore that was propped and where production has occurred. Using this information to test calibrated proppant filled fracture models, along with fracture velocities, helps evaluate the enhanced permeability around the wellbore from stimulation.
