Investigating the role of elastostatic stress transfer during hydraulic fracturing-induced fault activation

Abstract:

We investigate the physical processes that generate seismicity during hydraulic fracturing. Fluid processes (increases in pore pressure and poroelastic stress) are often considered to be the primary drivers. However, some recent studies have suggested that elastic stress interactions may significantly contribute to further seismicity. In this work we use a microseismic data set acquired during hydraulic fracturing to calculate elastic stress transfer during a period of fault activation and in...
