Abstract

Hydraulic fracturing is important for optimizing hydrocarbon production, but mapping and imaging the fractures and other mechanical and physical processes is even more important. This talk will review microseismic monitoring, go over some case studies and discuss how the technology has changed today's hydrocarbon extraction process.

Biography

Neda Boroumand (MIT) is a Geophysicist with over 8 years of work experience in the oil and gas industry doing hydraulic fracture mapping and reservoir monitoring. Her entire professional career has been in acquisition, processing and interpretation of passive seismic data. She has been involved in a number of publications and interpreted hundreds of hydraulic fracture treatments in producing and emerging energy fields in Canada and Worldwide. Ms. Boroumand's Ph.D. research helped advance the application of microseismic data through numerical modeling and has integrated concepts from many disciplines to characterize fractures and the geologic subsurface in order to optimize field development.
