ESG Solutions, an industry leader in borehole and surface-based microseismic technology and services announced today organizational changes to its Kingston and Denver-based operations which will accelerate ESG's continued growth within the energy and mining industries.

ESG Announces Successful Commercial Test of High-temperature, High-pressure Downhole Microseismic System for Hydraulic Fracture Monitoring

ESG Solutions, an industry leader in downhole and surface-based microseismic technology and services announced today that it recently completed a successful commercial test of its new HOTSHOT™ downhole microseismic system in the Eagle Ford shale.  HOTSHOT™ represents ESG’s latest commitment to acquiring the highest quality microseismic data.  The new downhole system was designed specifically for high-temperature, high-pressure operational environments up to 177°C/350°F and 10,000 psi. 

Registration Now Open for ESG's 8th Microseismic Symposium

ESG Solutions is excited to announce the 8th edition of its popular Microseismic Symposium. The symposium, which targets ground control, geotechnical specialists and mine engineering professionals, will be held in Kingston, Ontario, Canada on June 9 to 11, 2019.

New Microseismic Analysis Approach Transforms Production Potential

FracMap Clarity™ is a proprietary six-step process that's increasing the value of microseismic data in the upstream oil and gas industry. By breaking down microseismic data in a variety of new ways, and examining the relationships between variables in greater detail, FracMap Clarity™ gives operators a clearer view of fractures created by fluid versus those simply driven by stress. It adds a premium level of insight to ESG's existing FracMap® offering encompassing comprehensive downhole and surface microseismic acquisition, processing and analysis services for hydraulic fracturing operations. 

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."
