Come see our Technical Session:


Assessing Seismic Hazard and Hydraulic Fracture-Induced Seismicity

Sheri Bowman-Young, Lindsey Meighan, and Dr. Ted Urbancic, ESG Solutions Canada; Eric Von Lunen, Jason Hendrick, NexenCNOOC Ltd.

Presented by Sheri Bowman-Young

THEME:  4D Diagnostics and Modeling

DATE:  Wednesday, September 30

TIME:  9:45 - 10:10 AM

ROOM:  Assembly Room B

A vast number of the reported cases of increased seismicity of moderate magnitude (Mw > 0) earthquakes seem to be tied to some form of fluid injection activity.  Regulations have been proposed to implement traffic light systems to dictate the responses that the industry needs to take based on either the magnitudes or observed particle velocities or accelerations on the surface.  We examined datasets associated with hydraulic fracture completions in the Horn River Basin in NE British Columbia and using this dataset, we looked closely at the stress releases of the largest recorded event, a M2.9, and related seismicity with Mw>0.   Using this catalogue we built a relationship between the magnitudes, depths, and observed ground motion to help better estimate the risk associated with these larger magnitude events.
