ESG Solutions Collaborates in Novel Temporary Fibre Optic Deployment in Western Canada

ESG was proud to work with OptaSense on a recent temporary, retrievable fibre optic program for the University of Calgary in Western Canada. The field test represents one of the first such deployments in the region and offers high quality fibre optic data at a fraction of the cost of permanent fibre installations.

ESG Solutions Partners with OptaSense to Provide Integrated Frac Insights

OptaSense has partnered with ESG Solutions to provide advanced diagnostic intervention and microseismic analysis services. Through the partnership, OptaSense and ESG will deliver retrievable wireline systems that integrate advanced crosswell strain monitoring with 3-component geophone microseismic monitoring in unconventional plays.

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.
