Experience of applying microseismic monitoring for control waterflood into Northern Truva deposits



Results of passive microseismic monitoring of water injection into one of the wells of the carbonate deposits are presented. The maps of the spatial distribution of sources have prepared and the analysis of the dynamic parameters of microseismic events together with graphs of pressure and injection volumes has done. The possibility of operational control of the process of flooding is shown on the example of Northern Truva.
