Spectraseis and Calmena partnership for Canada microseismic

Friday, August 3, 2012

Houston based microseismic company Spectraseis has made a partnership with Calgary wireline provider Calmena Energy Services, to offer microseismic services in Canada.

The companies are already working together on 'several' integrated surface and borehole frac monitoring programs for operators in Canada, including a 60-stage frac monitoring program in Northeast British Columbia.

The companies will jointly provide microseismic acquisition, imaging and advisory services.

The microseismic recordings can be made using devices in the borehole, on the surface and at the near surface.

The joint work will use Calmena's strengths as a wireline and well services provider, with Spectraseis' strengths doing microseismic data acquisition, imaging and interpretation.

Good microseismic surveys require that the downhole and surface arrays are closely integrated, Spectraseis says.

The companies will jointly provide well stimulation interpretation and petrophysical integration, microseismic survey design, seismic velocity modelling and real time fracture modelling.

"Microseismic monitoring of well fracture stimulations provides operators the information to optimize the main cost drivers of unconventional reservoir development, particularly well spacing and orientation, and frac design," Spectraseis says.

"Real-time monitoring of fracture stimulations provides data for operators to optimize their stimulation program in response to frac behaviour."
