"MAN-MADE EARTHQUAKES IN THE AGE OF UNCONVENTIONAL OIL & GAS DEVELOPMENT"

Speaker: Dr. Matthew Weingarten

Abstract: U.S. oil fields have been producing much more water than oil for decades. This produced water is highly saline and cannot be disposed of on the surface and thus is re-injected deep below potable drinking water supplies using fluid injection wells. Here I'll discuss the relationship between fluid injection and the unprecedented seismic rate increase in the U.S. mid-continent beginning in 2009. This rate increase occurred in regions where earthquakes were generally uncommon and not predicted by the laws of natural seismicity. I'll discuss a few recent projects addressing injection-induced seismicity in Oklahoma and other regions using computational modeling and statistical approaches.
