Induced Seismicity Potential in Energy Technologies


Published on Jul 19, 2013

This video explains the conditions that have produced some small manmade earthquakes during various energy production activities, including conventional oil and gas, hydraulic fracturing, geothermal energy, and the injection of wastewater for underground disposal. The video also explores the potential for earthquakes to develop from use of new energy technologies such as carbon capture and storage. The information is based upon the National Research Council report, Induced Seismicity Potential in Energy Technologies.
