ESG Solutions Announces Successful Deployment Of Innovative Microseismic Acquisition System For Research Consortium





CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ESG Solutions, an industry leader in microseismic technology and services, is pleased to announce the successful deployment of its SuperCable™ microseismic acquisition system.  In use by a Microseismic Research Consortium to monitor hydraulic fracturing operations in Western Canada, the system provides longer-term borehole acquisition at lower cost than traditional wireline-based acquisition equipment.

"Wireline deployment is the accepted method for temporary downhole microseismic monitoring," says Shan Jhamandas, General Manager for Western Canada at ESG.  "Unfortunately, conventional wireline tools are typically not designed for extended deployment periods and as a result, the equipment becomes too costly over longer durations."  For long-term reservoir monitoring, many operators choose to deploy permanent systems, for which ESG has manufactured and installed proprietary instrumentation for over 15 years.  The SuperCable™ represents an innovative monitoring solution that offers the flexibility of temporary wireline deployment, with the performance and cost benefit of long-term monitoring systems. 

Developed, tested and commercialized by ESG's dedicated R&D division, the SuperCable™ is a retrievable, multiuse recording system designed specifically to break the trade-off between wireline-based monitoring projects and permanent installations. "What makes the SuperCable™ unique is the way it is deployed," says Jason Forks, Director of US Hydraulic Fracturing Sales at ESG.  "The system employs ESG's instrumentation traditionally used to detect induced seismicity in permanent reservoir monitoring applications, with an innovative method that mimics wireline deployment."

Initially deployed to monitor a hydraulic fracturing operation, the SuperCable™ continues to listen for seismic activity within the reservoir months after the wells are completed.  The method is also ideal for monitoring projects spanning a few months to a year, including carbon sequestration and thermal recovery operations.  ESG designs, manufactures and installs its own permanent microseismic instrumentation for longer-term reservoir stimulations and surface-based regional seismic networks.  ESG also provides wireline data acquisition, processing and advanced analytics for hydraulic fracturing.
