Abstract: Cimarex acquired microseismic on an eight well infill project in the STACK play in Oklahoma during the summer of 2018. The impetus for the microseismic collection was the presence of induced seismicity during the prior completion of offset wells. The result is one of the most fascinating microseismic data sets ever acquired. We will present key observations and findings from the data set and discuss how it was able to influence real time decision making to minimize induced seismic activity.
Jamie Rich is an exploration geophysicist for Cimarex Energy where he works in their technology group. Prior to Cimarex, he was employed by Devon Energy where he spent time working in multiple business units as well as their geophysical technology group. He spent three years on the faculty at the University of Oklahoma where his teaching and research focused on passive seismic and seismic attributes. He also taught Seismic Interpretation at Oklahoma State University for four semesters. He was associate editor for passive seismic in the Journal Geophysics from 2012-2018. He earned his MS and PhD degrees from the University of Oklahoma in Geophysics and his BS in both Applied Physics and Anthropology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
Austin Bailey is a geoscientist for Cimarex Energy in the Anadarko Region. He completed his undergraduate in 2015 and his Masters of Geophysics in 2017 at Colorado School of Mines, after which he joined the geophysics team at Cimarex. His work primarily focuses around seismic and log interpretation, reservoir characterization, and data analytics within Oklahoma, N. Texas, and the Texas Panhandle.
