University of Southern California Workshop Hydraulic Fracturing and Induced Seismicity

This workshop is intended for the oil and gas operators involved in the stimulation and completion practices in shale gas and liquid rich shale using hydraulic fracturing. The workshop is a prelude to the formation of a an international consortium of operatorsfor the development of predictive tools and models as well as the associated hazard maps for induced seismicity (IS) caused by hydraulic fracturing (HF). The goal is to develop an effective scientific based roadmap for best operational practices, policy decisions, regulatory processes, and public communication with respect to the frac activities in the shale plays in the U.S. and elsewhere.
Deadline to register is June 10, 2012. For more information and to register, contact Aimee Barnard at and 213.740.8028.
