Although passive microseismic methods are widely known in geological engineering, mining and seismology sectors, they are a relatively new trend in the oil and gas industry whilst their application in the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) sector is in its infancy. The number of possible uses for the passive seismic is growing each year. Presently, the passive microseismic surveys are conducted for the oil and gas industry in exploration, production and EOR/IOR projects in mature fields with complicated reservoirs. In CCS, several studies were conducted primarily aimed at identification of seismic events triggered by the CO₂ injection.
Today, TenzorGEO uses passive microseismic methods to address a very extensive range of tasks — from hydrocarbons prospecting and survey operations across all stages of geological exploration, to solving various process-related issues in the oil and gas field development.
Below we present only a few of the applications where challenges can be overcome by using microseismic studies. In reality, their number is much larger, and TenzorGEO continuously strives to develop tailor-made solutions in response to the issues our customers face.
