Schlumberger petrotechnical services collaborate with operators on understanding hydraulically induced fracture system geometry, and temporal evolution facilitates effective stimulation treatments and improves well economics.
Borehole-based microseismic fracture monitoring involves accurate imaging of the geometries of sets of hydraulic fractures (natural or induced), providing a 4D view of your reservoir’s flow network. Monitoring network design, tool selection, processing, visualization, and interpretation using seismic-to-simulation software provides this analysis directly within the geological model, fully integrated with your seismic and petrophysical data.
The StimMAP hydraulic fracture mapping service captures microseismic activity during the fracturing process. Schlumberger petrotechnical engineers collect microseismic data from sensor arrays in nearby wells, apply processing techniques to analyze complex sets of recorded acoustic waveforms, and use advanced visualization and interpretation techniques to monitor and analyze the spatial and temporal evolution of fracture networks in 4D, relative to the location of the fracturing treatment. InterACT global connectivity, collaboration, and information service enables onsite engineers to collaborate in real time with interpreters and decision makers offsite.
Microseismic monitoring also delivers information about evolving reservoir stress that can enhance reservoir development in tight gas and shale completions, fault mapping, reservoir imaging, waterflood monitoring, drilling waste disposal, and thermal recovery.
Increases safety and optimizes drilling decisions with real-time borehole seismic data interpretation.
