M any injection processes are monitored through the use of microseismic monitoring at short distances by the detection and analysis of micro-earthquakes. Hydraulic fracturing and cyclic steaming are capable of generating thousands of micro-earthquakes with magnitudes typically ranging from –Mw4 to –Mw1. The instrumentation and configuration of the microseismic monitoring networks are chosen with this magnitude range in mind, and the relatively high frequency signals are recorded with geophones… CONTINUE READING
