HOUSTON, Mar. 10 – Installation of a buried array system for 3D passive seismic imaging is complete in the Williston basin in North Dakota.
MicroSeismic Inc., Houston, buried the array across more than 150 sq miles in Mountrail County for a unit of Whiting Petroleum Corp. The array uses more than 1,200 geophone channels to monitor, map, and analyze hydraulic fracturing operations in Whiting’s Bakken and Three Forks wells in Sanish field.
Microseismic is installing buried arrays in the Haynesville shale and the Midland basin in West Texas in the first quarter of 2010.
