AbstractThe Induced Seismicity Research (ISR) project has a national scope with team members from NRCan offices in Sidney, Vancouver, Ottawa, and Quebec City. The Project established close collaborators with both public and private sectors, including provincial and local governments, crown corporations, professional organizations, and research universities, to address critical knowledge gaps in induced seismicity and to provide observation-based science to improve regulations on the development of unconventional hydrocarbon resources. The ISR Project has accomplished numerous achievements during the past 5 years. Five most representative examples are presented. They are:
Enhanced regional seismicity monitoring in major shale gas basins in east, west, and north Canada;
Establish scientific evidence for the link between hydraulic fracturing and induced earthquakes in Canada;
Explore factors that control the seismogenesis of induced earthquakes;
Improved methodology/algorithm in detecting/locating small injection-induced earthquakes;
Contribute to improved regulations on the development of unconventional hydrocarbons.
