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.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This scientific document is a wrap up of the research done in the Environmental Geoscience Program from 2014 to 2019. This document explain the science behind the program over the past 5 years covering a range of state of the art science in critical metal deposits, geoscience tools, shale gas and groundwater, oil sands, fluid in carbonates, mercury, geological storage of carbon, induced seismicity and dredge disposal. All the sciences done under this program contribute to provincial regulations as well as environmental assessments to ensure the safety and security of Canadians and to their environment.
