ISTI & Geobit join together at the AGU Annual Meeting in San Francisco 9 – 13 Dec. 2019. We are a team providing a complete seismic monitoring solution. Contact us through SHM.works.
With 65+ years of combined experience, GEObit and ISTI are joining forces to become the most competitive and fastest growing joint venture group in the seismic monitoring services industry.
Providing state-of-the-art seismic instruments, network design, installation techniques, data monitoring and processing services, our group is able to deliver a cost-effective total solution to the energy exploration & production industry, especially to the oil, gas and geothermal sector. Our key benefits are that we produce in-house hardware and software while installing and maintaining the microseismic monitoring network to ensure a high level of data quality and availability. In other words, we make the technology – we apply the technology – we offer the technology.

We have worldwide experience having installed and operated seismic networks all over the world, from Indonesia/Papua jungle to the Middle East desert, from Alaska glaciers to Himalayan Mountains. In the USA, we are currently running many dedicated microseismic monitoring projects with over 200 stations installed in the past 10 years.

As noted in the Houston Chronical news article, a new study published this week in Geophysical Research Letters indicates that much of the recent seismicity in the Eagle Ford shale gas play in Texas is induced by hydraulic fracturing. Fasola and her colleagues found a significant correlation between completion activity on wells and earthquakes close by. They further noted a large increase in seismicity that was coincident with the operations that was over 30 times the background seismicity rate for the area in 2018. The state seismic network, TexNet, provides earthquake locations to operators and the public during business day operations, but if operators need rapid and more timely access to data, ISTI provides a Rapid Notification Service from our cloud system that is operating 24×7. Get notified of an earthquake in your area of operation as it unfolds.
If more stations are necessary, ISTI provides rental equipment and crews to deploy stations at a moments notice. We also have professional seismologists to help with regulatory issues related to seismicity. Contact us today to see how we can apply our analytics and experience to your operation’s seismicity issues.
ISTI’s Sid Hellman is attending the annual EarthCube meeting this week in Denver, Colorado. Please stop by and say hi to Sid and ask about the web development work we did for this cool NSF funded project. You can see more about the program at this link for the schedule.
ISTI is presenting at the AGU Fall Meeting being held in Washington D.C., 10-14 December 2018. In addition, ISTI welcomes you to visit our team at our AGU exhibit (booth 815) throughout the week.

Sid Hellman of ISTI (the US distributor of GEObit instrumentation) is attending the IRIS Seismic Instrumentation Technology Symposium 2018 in Tucson, Arizona, October 30 to 31.
ISTI specializes in developing custom data acquisition, analysis, and processing software for the geophysical sciences. Microseismic data acquisition and processing are performed by custom solutions using existing open source software as a foundation, saving our customers both time and money. ISTI provides several products and services covering all geophysical applications and monitoring needs of the industry.
GEObit provides high sensitivity wide-band and near broad-band seismic sensors, surface or borehole type, and high dynamic range, low power 32bit ADC data loggers with local data storage and real-time telemetry over seedlink protocol. We are focusing on low power and cost-efficient solutions so we provide to our customer seismic networks with low installation and maintenance costs. Our instruments are ideal for local and regional seismicity and micro-seismicity monitoring and for seismic events such as those induced by unconventional hydrocarbon extraction. Our high fidelity data loggers ensure that these signals are recorded with the highest resolution and timing accuracy.
Please look for Sid to discuss GEObit, or anything else seismic related.
