When it comes to hydraulic fracturing in unconventional reservoirs, microseismic data are most useful when integrated with other subsurface datasets in the form of geological or petrophysical data.
Thousands of shale wells throughout the United States have performed below expectations, raising questions about the strength and profitability of fracking, notes The Wall Street Journal. One of the main reasons for this concern is the inability to determine how far a fracking event has spread underground.
