CSUR Induced Seismicity Workshop II

Friday, December 9, 2016 - 12:00am to 11:45pm

Brad Birkelo of Spectraseis will be presenting and representing Spectraseis on an "Services Panel" at the CSUR Induced Seismicity Workshop on December 9, 2016.  His talk will be titled ML, Mw or Acceleration; the collision of science with regulation.


Event Details:

The Canadian Society for Unconventional Resources (CSUR) is pleased to be able to present its second annual induced seismicity workshop.  Following the overwhelming success of last year's session, CSUR plans to utilize the format that was employed last November.  This day long workshop will incorporate sessions conducted by government, academics, the service sector and the operators themselves along with extensive Q & A periods for each session. This event will allow attendees the opportunity to hear from experts involved in key areas of research and development on induced seismicity in both Alberta and British Columbia.  In addition operators will describe their utilization of micro seismic arrays for reservoir management as well as mitigation strategies for seismic events.
