Spectraseis seismic monitoring system in British Columbia

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Spectraseis of Houston has won a contract to install a seismic monitoring system in British Columbia, Canada, to permanently monitor a salt water injection system, to monitor earth tremors.

It will install high sensitivity seismometers both at the surface and downhole.

The company will gather data about any small earth tremors, or "seismicity", which occurs around the well injection site, and if there are any, it will be able to evaluate if they have any connection with its water injection.

Spectraseis also provides the "ISV-Pro" web interface, to enable customers to view the data, and check the status of the monitoring stations.

There is a system to archive the data and provide remote access to it.

The company already provides a similar service for a number of oil and gas producers in the US.

"Induced seismicity is an area of growing interest to corporate policy-makers and regulators in North America," says Rob Habibger, CTO of Spectraseis.

"Our customers are increasingly taking the responsible position of acquiring the data necessary to evaluate and understand seismicity in their areas of operations."
