Real-time Microseismic Monitoring for Nexen’s 143-Stage Multi-Well Horizontal Fracture Operation in the Horn River Basin

ESG performed real-time microseismic monitoring 24 hours a day during a 43-day 8-well hydraulic fracture stimulation for Nexen Inc. Engineers and geophysicists at Nexen were able to gain valuable insight into the behavior of fracture development, and make adjustments to fracture plans to optimize future projects in the Horn River basin.
