An Integrated Approach to Identify the Trigger Mechanisms of HF-Induced Seismicity in Duvernay Shale Reservoir

Gang Hui



In this presentation, new integrated method to characterize HF-induced seismicity was given.  Four major faults were identified by ant-tracking technique in good agreement with focal mechanism results of events clusters. The rock geomechanics and stress field with fluid flow inside fractures were coupled. Three types of trigger mechanisms for HF-induced seismicity were identified.
