InSite-HF™ is ICL's specialist software product for setting up a microseismic hydraulic fracturing project and then guiding the user through data acquisition, processing and interpretation. Microseismic events can be located through simple and complex velocity models. Manual and automated waveform processing can be carried out with comprehensive import and export of raw and processed event data. Seismic events, field objects, geological structures and analysis objects can be visualized within a 3D volume.
InSite-HF™ provides tools for importing, processing and visualizing seismic data with a high-level of automation, making processing and reprocessing a simple work flow.
InSite-HF™ is developed in a version controlled environment within a quality management system. InSite™ has been available as a commercial product for two decades and has been used by leading companies for realtime monitoring, quality assurance, post-processing, reprocessing and advanced analysis.
We provide customised solutions for specific monitoring projects and setups. Contact us at [email protected] to discuss your specific needs and how InSite-Lab can be developed to fit your project.
Technical support is provided by geophysicists with experience in commercial projects in the oil & gas and geothermal sectors. We offer open software training courses from our Shrewsbury office and can provide bespoke training solutions for companies online or in person.
