Hydraulic Fracturing In Michigan Examined In Technical Reports
2013-09-06 09:52:54

University of Michigan University of Michigan researchers today released seven technical reports that together form the most comprehensive Michigan-focused resource on hydraulic fracturing, the controversial natural gas and oil extraction process commonly known as fracking. The studies, totaling nearly 200 pages, examine seven critical topics related to the use of hydraulic fracturing in Michigan, with an emphasis on high-volume methods: technology, geology and hydrogeology, environment...

University of Alberta UAlberta geophysicist helped develop technique to monitor effects of "miniature earthquakes" generated by hydraulic fracturing. University of Alberta geophysicist Mirko van der Baan is a great listener. For 15 years, he's been eavesdropping on oil and gas production deep beneath the ground. Now, he's part of a research team working to help industry minimize the unintended consequences of hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking. Fracking has been lauded...

SR2020 3DProVSP reservoir monitoring images the physical and chemical effects of EOR-CO2 injection on the reservoir--tracking the spread of CO2 inside and potentially outside the reservoir, as well as the redistribution of oil and gas over time. SR2020's high resolution methods and data accuracy can help accelerate and increase recovery, provide insight into well and injectant placement, and reduce the cost of infrastructure and improve financial performance.
