ESG Solutions' Energy Services Unit Announces Milestone: 1.2 million passive microseismic events acquired and processed in 2017

ESG Solutions is excited to announce that it has acquired and processed a record number of passive microseismic events in 2017. One of the reasons for this milestone, according to Shan Jhamandas, General Manager of Energy Services, is the increase in hydraulic fracturing activity across North America. Also contributing to the record number of events acquired and processed is that completions are becoming more complex and diagnostic tools are becoming more important. John Greff, North America Director of Sales for ESG's energy services unit, notes that "oil and gas operators continue to test and refine their completion designs, including; increased proppant concentration, higher cluster counts, increased stage counts, and longer laterals."

ESG Solutions Powers Innovative Well Completion Evaluations for Hydraulic Fracturing

ESG Solutions, an industry leader in microseismic solutions for the oil and gas and mining industries, has developed advanced analytical applications for microseismic data that helps operators understand the effectiveness of different fracturing techniques, and predict the capability of a fracture network to sustain the flow of hydrocarbons back to the well. The study on fracture effectiveness will be presented as a Keynote paper at the Society of Petroleum Engineers – Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference held in The Woodlands, Texas from January 23 to 25 in 2018. 

Spectraseis Unveils Surface Microseismic Approach to Provide Insight into Proppant Placement during Hydraulic Fracturing

Spectraseis, an industry leader in surface-based microseismic technology and services has developed a surface-microseismic analysis approach that helps operators visualize the extent of propped fracture lengths during hydraulic fracturing to better diagnose and improve fracturing effectiveness.

ESG's Ted Urbancic to Speak at 2017 WTGS Annual Fall Symposium

ESG's CTO Dr. Ted Urbancic will be presenting at the 2017 WTGS Annual Fall Symposium in Midland, Texas on September 27, 2017. The paper, titled "Unlocking the potential of microseismic monitoring for hydraulically fractured tight reservoirs" is a joint effort between ESG and Anderson Thompson Reservoir Strategies and looks at the benefits of using microseismic-calibrated RTA in production modeling.
