When E&P companies need geophysical data processing and analysis services, they turn to MSI’s team of experienced geophysicists and geologists who have the unique experience to process and analyze passive seismic datasets, whether they were acquired directly by MSI or by a third party. Utilizing our leading processing and imaging technologies such as PSET®, our team of experts draw upon a comprehensive background of education and work experience to provide the highest resolution imaging and analysis of microseismic events.
We have worked closely with clients around the globe to process and analyze data from downhole, surface and shallow borehole datasets. We also have experience with specialized projects, including data processing and analysis for earthquake location and monitoring, specialized field studies and long-term reservoir monitoring.
Other key benefits of processing or reprocessing microseismic data with MSI include:
- Improved accuracy through an understanding of anisotropy-related issues, borehole deviation corrections and velocity model building
- Improved signal-to-noise ratio based on noise reduction techniques that include recognition and filtering, state-of-the-art processing and extensive experience with suppression of surface noise related to oil and gas production.
- Characterization of microseisms by multiple attributes including source mechanism, location and origin time, which are critical for tying events to pump curves, and for reservoir characterization and geological interpretation.
- State-of-the-art first-break picking on noisy datasets, as well as relative picking and location for improved location accuracy and interpretation.
