The ability to estimate the stimulated reservoir volume and to enhance the effectiveness of hydraulic fracturing operation is fundamental in field development planning and critical to optimizing well completion in unconventional gas exploration and production. Microseismic Monitoring (MSM) survey provides essential observations study how induced rock volume responds seismically under field hydraulic fracture stimulation. Recent advanced microseismic technology with further development can provide real-time monitoring and interpretation which will improve hydraulic fracturing efficiency and better EUR, stop induced fracture development toward fault zones, and avoid connecting water-bearing layers. Advanced processing can enhance weaker microseismic signal, which provides a more complete Microseismically-Stimulated Reservoir Volume (M-SRV). M-SRV is essential to build the 3D understanding of the induced fracture network under various stimulation designs in volumes and in patterns from each fracturing stage.
