The characterisation of fluid transport properties of rocks is one of the most important, yet difficult, challenges of reservoir geophysics, but is essential for optimal development of hydrocarbon and geothermal reservoirs. This book provides a quantitative introduction to the underlying physics, application, interpretation, and hazard aspects of fluid-induced seismicity with a particular focus on its spatio-temporal dynamics. It presents many real data examples of microseismic monitoring of hydraulic fracturing at hydrocarbon fields and of stimulations of enhanced geothermal systems. The author also covers introductory aspects of linear elasticity and poroelasticity theory, as well as elements of seismic rock physics and mechanics of earthquakes, enabling readers to develop a comprehensive understanding of the field. Fluid-Induced Seismicity is a valuable reference for researchers and graduate students working in the fields of geophysics, geology, geomechanics and petrophysics, and a practical guide for petroleum geoscientists and engineers working in the energy industry.Read more
- Provides a practical and systematic background to concepts necessary for understanding fluid-induced seismicity and for interpretation of microseismic monitoring data
- Develops a seismicity-based reservoir characterisation approach, focussing particularly on seismicity induced by borehole fluid injections
- Mathematical treatments of practical applications are simple and accessible
Reviews & endorsements
"Shapiro has done a good job of developing the theory, presenting relevant case studies, and referencing appropriate current literature. The mathematical development is quite extensive but can be easily followed. The relevant knowledge gained, even without going through all the mathematics, shines through. This book is a current and relevant reference book for graduate students and practitioners in this area of geophysics. Both theoretical- and application-oriented geophysicists will derive value from this book."

'This book offers a comprehensive review of the fluid-induced microseismicity field. It is well written and the figures are all from peer-reviewed publications and printed in great quality. One of its [strengths] is the constant back and forth between theory and real-data examples from hydrocarbon fields and geothermal systems. This book should be recommended with enthusiasm to graduate students and researchers involved in geomechanics, geophysics, geology and petrophysics as well as engineers working in the energy industry.'

The subject is addressed from the theoretical angle by developing poroelastic theory in a specific but splendid way but also from the observational point of view. This is one of the few books where theory/modeling and observation/interpretation are synergetic: Theory allows real understanding of observations of induced seismicity and the observations drive the theory developed for instance for maximum magnitudes. Currently the best book on the subject.
