Seismic Focal Point

Real-time induced seismicity monitoring service


Detect local seismic events in real time

Induced seismicity is a phenomenon that occurs when mechanical stress shifts subsurface layers, causing tremors. SLB has taken the lead in addressing the detection and effects of this phenomenon through its Seismic Focal Point™ real-time induced seismicity monitoring service. 

The service uses special instrumentation to record low-energy events, and its cloud-based system provides automated, prompt notification of local seismic events that might affect regulatory compliance.
