Role of Fluid Injection in Induced Seismicity

EasyChair Preprint no. 13106

11 pagesDate: April 27, 2024


It has drawn a great deal of attention and concern in recent years to consider the role that fluid injection plays in generated seismicity. The objective of this research is to investigate the mechanisms and contributing elements that relate to generated seismic events and fluid injection activities, specifically related to hydraulic fracturing and wastewater disposal. The study investigates the geological and operational parameters that impact the seismic response to fluid injection through an extensive assessment of the literature and case studies that have already been published. The study emphasizes that the main variables influencing generated seismicity are changes in pore pressure, fault reactivation, and subsurface stress distribution. The study also assesses possible ways to mitigate the danger of induced seismic events related to fluid injection activities, as well as monitoring strategies that may be used. The study's conclusions advance knowledge of the intricate relationships that exist between fluid injection and seismic activity and offer guidance for the creation of better operational and regulatory procedures that reduce the seismic risk connected to fluid injection activities.
