Title (EN) METHOD OF SUBSURFACE IMAGING USING MICROSEISMIC DATA
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'IMAGERIE SOUTERRAINE METTANT EN ŒUVRE DES DONNÉES MICRO-SISMIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) A method of subsurface imaging is disclosed, the method involving using input data relating to the geometry of a fracture in a subsurface medium, mechanical properties of the medium and in-situ stress states in the medium, to model the behaviour of the fracture and obtain predicted information relating to deformation of the fracture. The predicted information is then used to constrain the interpretation of measured microseismic data caused by movement of the fracture to determine characteristics of the movement and/or failure of the fracture.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé d'imagerie souterraine comprenant l'utilisation de données d'entrée concernant la géométrie d'une fracture dans un milieu souterrain, des propriétés mécaniques du milieu et des états de contrainte in situ dans le milieu, pour créer un modèle du comportement de la fracture et obtenir une information prédite concernant la déformation de la fracture. L'information prédite est ensuite utilisée pour contraindre l'interprétation de données micro-sismiques mesurées générées par le mouvement de la fracture pour déterminer les caractéristiques du mouvement et/ou de l'effondrement de la fracture.
