Understanding reservoir characteristics, rock properties, and shale-specific production factors can make the difference between cost-effective development and a process that is riddled with production and completion headaches. Microseismic is one such technology that not only aids in enhancing production, but can provide crucial reservoir information not readily obtainable from any other source.

The Schlumberger StimMAP LIVE real-time microseismic fracture monitoring service provides fracture monitoring within 30 seconds of microseismic activity. Microseismic hydraulic fracture monitoring requires a fully automated processing and data transmission process to form the basis of true real-time decisions that positively affect hydraulic fracture placement. Visualization and interpretation using Petrel seismic-to-simulation software provides analysis within the geological model, integrated with seismic and petrophysical data.
