ESG in Amsterdam for the 4th EAGE Passive Seismic Workshop

Monday, March 18, 2013 - 12:00am to Wednesday, March 20, 2013 - 11:45pm

Interest in passive seismic techniques – microseismic monitoring in particular – continues to grow rapidly, driven in large part by the success of these techniques in providing valuable insight into subsurface geomechanical processes associated with energy production and mining.  Held at the NH Barbizon Palace, in Amsterdam, this fourth event in the series of EAGE workshops on passive seismic sets out to focus on field examples where the use of passive data was a key enabler for improving engineering operations and field management.

ESG is delivering three technical presentations and participating in a special vendor exhibition to demonstrate the latest in microseismic technology.
