Tight gas reservoirs typically require multiple stages of hydraulic fracturing in order to create the needed permeability to produce the gas locked in the pore space. Optimum field development depends on determining the effectiveness of the fracturing and proppant programs. A new seismic method, combining time lapse vertical seismic profiles and microseismic monitoring, is providing a potential way to detect and locate open, effective hydraulic fractures, and therefore a monitoring method to help design optimal fracturing programs.
