ESG is Delivering 7 Presentations at the SEG Microseismic Workshop in North Carolina Next Week

Sunday, August 17, 2014 - 12:00am to Friday, August 22, 2014 - 11:45pm

ESG will have strong representation as experts in microseismic monitoring at the 1st SEG International Microseismic Technology Workshop next week in Asheville, North Carolina.  The workshop will take place from August 17-22 at the DoubleTree Asheville-Biltmore Hotel.

While microseismic monitoring is a well established technology, many operators are still interested in learning about the geophysical challenges and are looking to improve their knowledge of microseismic methods and their role in helping to understand unconventional reservoirs.  The SEG workshop will feature contributions from industry and academia on many aspects of microseismic technology including:

  • Data acquisition
  • Processing
  • Interpretation
  • Case studies
  • Environmental issues

ESG will be delivering six oral presentations and one poster presentation at the workshop.  Details are provided below:
