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.

ESG’s Chief Technology Officer Dr. Ted Urbancic will present the paper as a keynote speaker during a Wednesday session focusing on unconventional fracturing.  “This will be a fantastic opportunity for valuable discussion surrounding the benefits of microseismic analysis beyond the typical level of interpretation that operators obtain from a microseismic program,” says Urbancic.  “There’s really a lot of potential value we can extract from microseismic data to help operators understand and predict production from unconventional wells, and we’re looking forward to sharing our ideas with colleagues in the industry.”

“We’re incredibly pleased to co-author a paper with a recent client that shows some very promising results and insights in terms of different fracturing strategies and the resulting producing volumes,” says Doug Angus, Manager of the Innovation and Technology Group at ESG. “Through collaboration we are able to ensure our advancements in technology help operators maximize the returns on monitoring investments and are helping to solve the problems that matter most to them.”

In addition to showcasing its advanced analytical microseismic solutions in the keynote session, ESG will also be exhibiting on the show floor to demonstrate capabilities in both downhole and surface hydraulic fracture monitoring as well as Interactive Seismicity Monitoring.
