Symroc AER Induced Seismicity Monitoring Requirements

Updated: Jun 12, 2023

Symroc’s induced seismicity monitoring network is used by a public natural gas company in compliance with Alberta Energy Regulator’s requirements. Symroc's client has been required by the AER, the province’s sole regulator of oil, oil sands, natural gas, and coal resource development, following the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act (EPEA) to monitor and report seismic activities near its oil and gas operation sites.


At Symroc, we ensure compliance with regulatory requirements by deploying multiple sensors in close proximity to your operation's location to monitor vibrations. These sensors collect data in real-time, which is then transmitted securely back to our headquarters. With our specialized software to analyze the data, identify patterns, to help you make informed decisions regarding maintenance and operations. In case of a significant magnitude event, our system automatically generates alerts and sends them directly to you, allowing for immediate response and mitigating potential risks. Additionally, we maintain a comprehensive database that securely stores all vibration events, providing valuable historical data for trend analysis and regulatory reporting. Trust Symroc for accurate monitoring, proactive alerts, and robust data management to meet your regulatory requirements effectively.

Waveforms of the March 16 earthquakes recorded on Symroc's station. Each spike indicates a distinct seismic event.

  1. Location and magnitude calculations of seismic events from Symroc’s stations matches that from AER’s seismic network, with greater accuracy.

  2. Smaller events undetectable by adjacent stations were picked up on Symroc’s sensors.

  3. Data is streamed and can be accessed remotely in real time.
