Title: Determining the Reservoir Stress Field From Microseismic Focal Mechanisms

Description: MicroSeismic’s new AutoMTI tool calculates a discrete focal mechanism, the orientation of a fracture plane and the direction of movement, for every event, thus providing an adequate distribution of fracture plane orientations and slip vectors to perform statistically reliable stress field inversions. In this webcast, we will present our workflow on how we derive the fracture plane solutions, SHmax direction and magnitude, and how this can be used to understand the variations in the stress field throughout the reservoir during stimulation.
