Microseismic imaging of hydrocarbon reservoirs treated with hydraulic fracturing

Hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, has become a widely used technique to extract shale gas, tight gas, tight oil, and coal seam gas from low-permeability hydrocarbon reservoirs by injecting fluid and chemicals into wellbores to create small fractures. It has significantly increase the yield of nature gas in recent years. This proposed project takes on the challenge of microseismic imaging for hydrocarbon reservoirs that are treated by hydraulic fracturing.
