Calmena Energy and Spectraseis will provide microseismic acquisition, imaging, and advisory services in Canada.
The agreement combines Calmena’s experience as a downhole microseismic wireline and well services provider with Spectraseis’ data acquisition and microseismic imaging and interpretation capabilities to deliver seamless fracture imaging and analysis solutions for all types of fracture monitoring using surface, near-surface, and deep borehole arrays.
Customers will benefit from the close technical and operating integration of downhole and surface arrays, which is essential to good microseismic monitoring design and efficient operations, as well the accurate, calibrated timing of the datasets for joint interpretation.
Services will include microseismic monitoring with borehole, near-surface, and surface arrays; microseismic data processing, imaging and analysis; well stimulation interpretation and petrophysical integration; microseismic survey design and forward modeling; seismic velocity modeling; and real-time fracture monitoring.
Microseismic monitoring of well fracture stimulations provides operators the information to optimize the main cost drivers of unconventional reservoir development, particularly well spacing and orientation, and frac design. Real-time monitoring of fracture stimulations provides data for operators to optimize their stimulation program in response to frac behavior.
Spectraseis and Calmena are already working together on several integrated surface and borehole frac monitoring programs for operators in Canada, including a 60-stage frac monitoring program in northeast British Columbia.
