Microseismic Monitoring in Oil or Gas Reservoirs

Duration: 2 days, October 12–13, 2017, 9h–17h, with coffee breaks and lunch
Venue: 1020 Vienna/Wien, Trabrennstraße 68

Course Level: Basic to Intermediate
Course fee: € 350 for members (incl. DGG, EAGE and Österreichische Geologische Gesellschaft) and € 450 for non-members

The course explains principles of microseismic monitoring ranging from acquisition in a single monitoring borehole to surface and near surface networks to engineering applications of microseismicity. Case studies are used when they illustrate the conceptual point; however they are not the main focus of this class. At the end of this class, attendees should be able to design, select the right kind of processing and understand the uncertainties in the microseismicity. Attendees will be able to understand and avoid interpretation of uncertain observations and gain insight in true information provided by microseismicity. No requirement on prior class is needed, although knowledge of hydraulic fracturing and seismology helps. Social and scientific aspects related to felt seismicity in the vicinity of oil and gas reservoirs will be discussed including recent case studies. The course will also discuss the latest development in microseismic applications from source mechanisms, though anisotropy to engineering applications. The class will focus on what a potential geoscience or engineering user of microseismic information needs to know to make good decisions procuring, understanding and applying microseismic results and information in your work.

The course is limited to 24 participants and will be held once 10 participants have registered.
Deadline for registration: August 30, 2017!
