Society for Earthquake and Civil Engineering Dynamics
Induced seismicity is being studied in technologies such as hydraulic fracturing, waste water disposal carbon sequestration and geothermal energy. Incidents such as the ones which took place in Lancashire (UK) and Basel (Switzerland) have led to a demand for more information on how to manage the risks involved in these activities and what the industry can do to address public concern.
The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) is proud to present Induced Seismicity 2013. This exclusive 2-day conference will bring expert seismologists from academia and government together with executives from the oil and gas industry to explore the key issues in this fast-evolving field. The event will be chaired by Professor Peter Styles of Keele University, a regular advisor to the UK government and a preeminent expert in Applied and Environmental Geophysics.
New exploration prospects are opening up in developed countries such as the UK. It is unsurprising that in such highly populated areas there is great concern about the environmental impact of onshore operations. Effective risk management and careful monitoring of operations is essential if resources are to be maximised. This event aims to help industry professionals to meet these challenges and show the way forward in responsible exploration and production.
