Innovative use of microseismic data to understand direct frac fluid hits at offset wells
This paper presents a method for detecting and analyzing tube waves recorded from a downhole geophone array as a hydraulic fracture grows toward and hits the observation well. Examples from both horizontal and vertical monitor wells are presented. An analysis of tube waves provides additional and independent fracture diagnostics data that can complement microseismic monitoring.
