Microseismic Monitoring

Real-time microseismic monitoring using surface arrays

Landtech Geophysics Ltd. is the only microseismic company that has developed an integrated early warning (pollution and seismic) risk mitigation system. This system can either be permanently installed all over a shale gas production field or installed temporarily during hydraulic fracking operations.

Seismic risk is mainly characterised by earthquake magnitudes. This module determines in real-time the local seismic magnitudes (ML) of the recorded events. When a predefined magnitude level is reached, a signal is sent to an electronic valve to control the gas production or hydraulic racking process. This system also allows the ‘traffic light’ warning scheme stipulated by regulators to be fulfilled via remote warnings.
