AbstractThis report examines whether the hydraulic fracturing of August and September 2014 in the McCully gas field and adjacent area produced any induced events that could be detected by the six-station seismograph array of southeastern New Brunswick. After verifying the automatic triggers of each individual station and visually scanning the nearest station to the wells where hydraulic fracturing occurred, it was found that no induced micro-earthquake occurred within the few hours during and following hydraulic fracturing operations.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report examines if the hydraulic fracturing (HF) of August and September 2014 in the McCully gas field and adjacent area produced any induced event that could be detected by the six-station seismograph array of southeastern New Brunswick. After verifying the triggers detected at individual stations and visually scanning the nearest station to the wells where hydraulic fracturing occurred, it was found that no induced microearthquake occurred within the few hours during and following HF operations.
