Geophysics seminar: Matthew Weingarten (SDSU) "The Evolving Picture of Injection-Induced Seismicity in the U.S. Mid-Continent"

10/02/2018 - 12:00pm
Munk Conference Room
Event Description: 

Talk Abstract:

U.S. oil fields have been producing much more water than oil for decades. However, injection-induced seismicity has markedly increased coincident with the recent unconventional oil revolution. A key feature of this boom in production is that much of recent injection has occurred into non-producing horizons. Here, I’ll discuss a few recent projects addressing injection-induced seismicity in Oklahoma and other regions using statistical and physics-based approaches.
