Effective Integrated Microseismic Solutions

Magnitude joint venture strengthens the Baker Hughes/CGG shale-science alliance

Baker Hughes and CGG have realigned the VSFusion joint venture to focus solely on microseismic, including monitoring, processing, visualization, interpretation, and permanent monitoring. The joint venture, now called Magnitude, strengthens the capabilities of Baker Hughes and CGG in unconventional resource plays and other emerging markets.

The two firms initially formed the VSFusion joint venture in 2003 to provide borehole seismic services. The explosive growth in unconventional resource plays, along with the mounting evidence that reservoir characterization is paramount to maximizing recovery from fractured zones, indicates a greater need to include microseismic for an integrated approach to reservoir characterization. In addition to borehole microseismic monitoring, Magnitude will work closely with CGG and its surface microseismic team to provide complete reservoir monitoring solutions.
