|Wireless Seismic Announces the Purchase of RT System 2 by MicroSeismic to Monitor Hydraulic Fracturing Operations
RT System 2– RealTIME and CableFREE seismic data acquisition system – ideal for passive seismic monitoring
BusinessWire/ME-Newswire - Wireless Seismic, Inc. announced today the sale of its RT System 2real-time and cable-less seismic data acquisition system to MicroSeismic, Inc., who will begin using RT System 2 in their passive seismic monitoring operations starting in October. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, MicroSeismic is the pioneering leader in monitoring microseismic activity using surface and near-surface seismic arrays during hydraulic fracturing activity.
“We are excited to be adding the Wireless Seismic technologyto our services portfolio,” stated Terry Jbeili, COO of MicroSeismic. “The deployment of this cable-less acquisition system will further drive operational excellence for our customers, particularly when employing real-time operations.”
“MicroSeismic has been working with Wireless Seismic for some time in the early testing and refinement of the system,” continued Jbeili. “We believe it is ideally suited for real-time microseismic acquisition.”
“We are delighted that MicroSeismic has chosen to deploy RT System 2 as a key component of the company’s new MicroSTAR frac monitoring services,” said Mick Lambert, President and COO, Wireless Seismic. “RT System 2 delivers a highly robust continuous recording capability for long-duration hydraulic fracture monitoring operations and opens the way to fully cable-lessimplementations of passive seismic monitoring where real-time data retrievalis a requirement.”
Wireless Seismic will exhibit RT System 2at the annual conference of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) in Las Vegas, Nevada, November 4-7.
