Velvet has been active in the liquids rich Montney over the past few years drilling horizontal wells and obtaining data to understand and optimize development. Microseismic data has been a component of this, attempting to quantify the stimulated rock volume and identify potential modifications that would maximize fracturing efforts.  Using a combination of different techniques, microseismic data is transformed, altered, modelled and filtered to help interpret the variations in microseismic characteristics. Attempting to understand the impact of mechanical and geomechanical processes and the influence adjusting hydraulic stimulation efforts can have is the primary motivation for the study.


Marco Perez received his B.Sc. at McGill University before completing an M.Sc. in Geophysics at the University of Calgary. He started working at PanCanadian, later Encana, focusing on AVO, inversion and LMR analysis. After moving to Apache in 2007 Marco has continued to work with advanced geophysical techniques within the Exploration & Production Technology group. In 2016 Marco moved to Velvet Energy where he is currently the Technical Specialist Lead.
