Cseg Published Guidelines for Standard Deliverables from Microseismic Monitoring of Hydraulic Fracturing1

January 01, 2014


The recent expansion of microseismic monitoring of hydraulic fracturing has created a need for standardized deliverables. Standardization will facilitate proper archiving of both data and reports, enable opportunities for efficient and effective reprocessing, and support industry exchange and trading of data. The Chief Geophysicists Forum of the CSEG formed a Microseismic Subcommittee with a remit that includes development of microseismic standards. This document describes suggested guidelines and minimum requirements for standardized microseismic deliverables. The focus of the document is borehole-based monitoring of hydraulic fracturing, although many of the aspects also apply to surface and shallow array monitoring, more general long-term reservoir microseismic monitoring applications, and other monitoring technologies such as tiltmeters.
