Synapse Hydrofrac Monitoring Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Microseismic 2012-technology for surface hydrofrac monitoring.
  • 2. Frac without monitoring:• $million losses of production wells• ecological problemsMonitoring options:• Boreholes: wells are expensive - unbeatable• Surface: signals are buried in noise - solvableFrac is theonly tool forshale gas PROBLEMproduction
  • 3. Key to success:coherent noise suppression and Solution signal extraction with OSA(Optimal Statistical Algorithms) Patented © SYNAPSE Science Center, 2010-2012 OSA- technology Microseismic Monitoring Equipment Platform Software MMP Field Methodology engineering of monitoring experience
  • 4. World Shale Plays Just the United StatesCovering only 10% of the conducts more than 25 000potential monitoring market hydrofracs for shale gassegment in the US brings recovery a year withapproximately $600million a estimated frac monitoringyear. market of $6 Billions.
  • 5. Economic benefits: our OSA surface jobs vs. borehole jobs:Competitive cost reduction up to 20Advantages times . . Microseismic Inc., attracted more than $100 million of venture investments in 2011 Our technology allows to excavate substantially more useful information about source signal
  • 6. Fracture Technology and IP Injection well OSA produces high quality information needed for higher quality frac mappingOUR IP: 4 patents RF, 1 patent submitted, 1 patent undergoes РСТ procedure. Software: copyrighted
