Study Reveals 2 Seismic Processes By Which Hydraulic Fracturing Induces Tremors

from Phys.Org

In some parts of western Canada, small-to-moderate earthquakes have been induced by oil and gas hydraulic fracturing operations. In Alberta, this type of induced seismicity is mainly concentrated within an area located about 30 kilometers west of the town of Fox Creek. Although a correlation between hydraulic fracturing and seismic events has been documented for over four years, a detailed mechanism has not been clearly understood — until now. more
