Our computational toolbox aids in producing quantitative mitigation and response plans to manage the risk of induced seismicity caused by a range of anthropogenic activities, including hydraulic fracturing and carbon dioxide storage. It takes a novel, innovative approach to modelling, wherein different injection scenarios can be simulated and the probabilities of earthquake maximum expected magnitudes estimated. It aims to significantly reduce the financial, environmental and social risk, as well as the potential to cause damage to local populations and infrastructure. The software is currently being ported into a user-friendly application so that it can be distributed. However, the prototype of this software is currently utilised in our consulting services.

Example of 3D change in effective stress required to slip for a fault interpreted from 3D seismic data
Stochastic approach to provide probability estimates: here, there is 28% probability of a magnitude ≥ 4.0
Sensitivity analysis shows which parameters have strongest influence on resulting magnitudes, including injection parameters
