Summary Summary Dual-Well Monitoring Enhances Microseismic Imaging of Hydraulic-Fracture Stimulation
In long laterals, a single monitoring well may not detect microseisms over the entire well. The use of two monitoring wells improves detection over the entire length of the lateral well. To achieve optimal production in tight-gas fields, microseismic monitoring is used to monitor the effectiveness of hydraulic fracture stimulations. Deformation associated with the stimulation, results in small magnitude micro-earthquakes whose locations are used to image the growth and geometry of the stimulated fracture network. This technique provides unique information for improving the stimulation design. Generally, receiver arrays are placed in a single observation well to record the micro-earthquakes. In long horizontal boreholes improved seismic detection and imaging can be obtained using data from additional observation wells.
