This paper describes a microseismic spot study that was carried out using 397 buried sensors on a steam injecting heavy oil field in Alberta, Canada. 4 microseismic events from 2301 possible candidates were located on the surface even after improvement of the signal through deconvolution and filtering of human activity. No microseismic events originating from the reservoir were detected. However a possible correlation has been observed between coherent noise and steam injection processes.
