Abstract

An insightful technical workshop took place 28–30 March 2016 in Fort Worth, Texas, to discuss topics related to injection-induced seismicity. The workshop followed two previous events (September 2012 in Broomfield, Colorado, USA, and September 2014 in Banff, Alberta, Canada), which were held in cooperation between SEG and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). The workshop series has mirrored the evolving technical understanding of this important issue, as injection-induced seismicity has continued to develop over the last several years. While the previous two workshops focused primarily on seismology, the recent Fort Worth workshop purposely focused on engineering considerations. Similar to the previous two workshops, the Fort Worth workshop sold out, and a waiting list was established to handle the overflow.
