Microseismic monitoring has become an essential, regulatory component of subsurface exploitation, whether for natural gas storage, CO₂ storage, or geothermal operations. Find out more about the aims and benefits of microseismic monitoring, and why it's a crucial element in the subsurface exploitation sector.

Objectives and requirements of microseismic monitoring

Microseismic monitoring enables the precise detection of seismic signals produced during each fracturing operation in the subsurface. It plays a crucial role in locating and qualifying fractures, enabling safer and more controlled exploitation of the subsoil.

The various use cases and their challenges 

The field of application for microseismic monitoring is vast. Whether for short- or long-term storage, geothermal energy or hydraulic fracturing, each use case presents its own unique challenges. Monitoring thus becomes the central pivot for anticipating, preventing and managing the risks specific to each operation.

The importance of early detection

The ability to detect even the slightest anomalies or fractures at an early stage is essential. This anticipation avoids later complications, guaranteeing the safety of infrastructures, operators and the environment.

Microseismic monitoring as a legal obligation 

In addition to its role as an indispensable tool for underground development, regulatory bodies have recognized the importance of microseismic monitoring and made it mandatory.

Microseismic monitoring is not only a necessary tool for safe and optimized underground operations, but also a legal obligation. Thanks to the precise detection and in-depth analysis of seismic data, the effects of underground mining can be optimally controlled, thus contributing to environmental protection and the safety of underground operations.
