2017 SEG Microseismic Workshop: Technologies & Applications

4-6 June 2017

Early registration deadline 15 May 2015


4-6 June 2017
Heifei, China

Microseismic events are generally associated with the release of energy from rock fracturing. Hydraulic fracturing in unconventional and tight oil/gas reservoirs often generates a large number of microseismic events, which can be used to monitor the fracturing process and guide the completion optimization. Meanwhile, microseismic monitoring technology is also playing an increasingly important role in understanding the local stress change in mining, tunnel excavation, waste water disposal, reservoir impoundment, CO2 sequestration, and monitoring active earthquake faults for safety reasons. Still, there are a lot of challenges to face in microseismic monitoring technologies and practical applications. This workshop aims to facilitate the communications on latest developments in microseismic technologies and applications, encourage sharing of microseismic knowledge, and promote applications of microseismic monitoring in various fields. This workshop will be held from 4-6 June 2017 in Westin hotel at Hefei. In-depth discussions among worldwide experts include the following subjects:

  1. Microseismic data acquisition and signal processing
  2. Velocity model updating, anisotropy and its impact
  3. Microseismic locations and uncertainties
  4. Source mechanisms and geomechanics
  5. Microseismic monitoring in unconventional reservoirs
  6. Microseismic monitoring in soil and hard rock mechanic applications
  7. Microseismic monitoring for natural earthquakes and active faults
  8. Induced seismicity due to fluid extraction and injection
