Founded in 1993 and with offices around the world, ESG Solutions is pioneer and industry leader in microseismic and integrated geoscience technology, software and services for the oil and gas, mining and geotechnical industries. Leading operators entrust their data to ESG as a valued strategic partner in optimizing production, reducing costs and mitigating the risks associated with resource development.
ESG’s offering ranges from innovative acquisition tooling and monitoring system design and manufacturing, to field installation and acquisition services, data processing services, 24/7 monitoring, and advanced analytics consulting. These are underpinned by state of the art proprietary software, used internally and by clients.
As an oilfield services provider, ESG deploys the offering through providing real-time and post-acquisition (downhole and surface based) monitoring and mapping of induced seismicity generated during hydraulic fracturing and reservoir stimulation in unconventional oil and gas formations. By providing feedback on where and how fractures are developing underground, operators can gain a better understanding of reservoir behaviour in response to stimulation, and incorporate this information in future decision making processes.
In the mining industry, ESG’s microseismic monitoring systems and services provide underground and open pit mines a continuous stream of real-time information that help mining and ground control engineers understand how the mine responds to excavation and extraction operations. Armed with timely rock mass insights, geotechnical engineers and ground control professionals can make better, faster decisions around seismic risk. ESG delivers actionable rock mass insights based on the collection and analysis of live seismic data.
Additional applications include thermal enhanced oil recovery (EOR), waste-water injections, natural gas storage, carbon sequestration, geothermal and geotechnical.
