Joining a seismic technology

It is such an honor to join MicroSeismic, a company that for almost 20 years has used industry leading passive seismic technology to protect the investments their clients have made in unconventional resources. I’m joining at the absolute right time to help MicroSeismic modernize their core business offering while taking the same proven technology and expertise into environmental (ESG) applications as we forge into the sinkhole and carbon sequestration markets. I look forward to contributing as MicroSeismic continues its growth as a world-leading data and IOT company with a continued focus on protecting our clients’ investments, and the integrity of their operations, and help ensure environmental compliance and hazard mitigation.

About MicroSeismic

MicroSeismic, Inc. provides critical data to sustain the health and vitality of surface and sub-surface assets. The company began in 2003 with a mission to bring passive seismic technology to the oil field.

Also, it has successfully monitored the stability of wellbores in tectonically active areas; CO2 sequestration (CCUS), sinkhole development, enhanced geothermal systems, reservoir stimulation; and seismic hazards in environmentally sensitive areas.

The shale boom of the mid-2000’s overwhelmed it with demand for hydraulic fracture monitoring. Today, priorities have changed. While frac monitoring is still a business driver for the company, new opportunities have expanded its original vision.

Finally, adaptable technology and almost 20 years of experience allow it to apply passive seismic techniques to a wide spectrum of problems relevant to the oil field and beyond.
