University of Calgary geoscientists help to pioneer new method of monitoring hydraulic fracturing

Novel technique used by Faculty of Science geophysical research group could significantly reduce industry’s costs, improve operations….collaboration with…OptaSense, a Luna company, which specializes in fiber-optic based acoustic sensing, a research team in the Department of Geoscience in the Faculty of Science implemented a field test of a temporary, retrievable optical fiber that was deployed four kilometers into a recently drilled unconventional gas well. Through the optical fiber and distributed acoustic sensing technology, the team was able to “listen” to nearby hydraulic fracturing operations as they were occurring
