HOUSTON, June 2 -- Common Resources LLC, Houston, let a contract to MicroSeismic Inc., Houston, to deploy a microseismic buried array in the Haynesville shale gas play.

The system will provide microseismic monitoring, mapping, and analysis for hydraulic fracturing of multiple wells. It will enable Common Resources to monitor the primary, secondary, and tertiary activity, in a variety of reservoir conditions, for its Haynesville wells during the next few years.

The system applies a proprietary analysis to seismic data collected by MSI's buried array as the reservoir undergoes fracture stimulation. It does not require dedicated monitoring wells. MicroSeismic Inc. has installed more than 75 sq miles of permanent, near-surface arrays since late 2008.
