Forward modeling optimizes survey plans
Optimizing array geometries is one of the most powerful ways to improve data quality and increase the value of microseismic data to the interpreter.
Our main goal in developing the survey geometry is to get the operator the best possible dataset within their budgetary parameters and ensure that the program goals will be met. We will deploy whatever tools are needed to optimize the results.
Spectraseis uses forward modeling to design the optimal acquisition geometry prior to field work to incorporate the objectives of the program into the local setting. Solutions include arrays with any combination of surface, near-surface, and borehole deployments.
By applying elastic forward modeling of acquisition geometries, including fracture source parameters and propagation effects, Spectraseis determines the most effective survey design and equipment selection to answer the key questions driving well completion decisions.
