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."

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.
