CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - November 17, 2016) - In some parts of western Canada, small to moderate earthquakes have been induced by oil and gas hydraulic fracturing operations. In Alberta, this type of induced seismicity is mainly concentrated within an area located about 30 kilometres west of the town of Fox Creek. Although a correlation between hydraulic fracturing and seismic events has been documented for over four years, a detailed mechanism has not been clearly understood - until now. Indirect evidence has pointed to activation of pre-existing faults as the underlying physical mechanism, but precise delineation of these features has been elusive. Without this deeper understanding, formulation of strong mitigation and prevention strategies has been a challenge for regulators and operating companies alike. Now, a new University of Calgary study, "Fault activation by hydraulic fracturing in western Canada," is reported in Science, one of the world's leading academic journals. In the most detailed study of this phenomenon to date, Faculty of Science researchers in the Department of Geoscience have successfully captured images of some of the pre-existing fault architecture near hydraulic fracturing operations and discovered that activation can occur through two distinct processes. "This study has provided extraordinary new details about processes of fault activation by pore pressure increase or stress changes. We can now begin to address important questions - the 'how' and 'why' of seismicity induced by hydraulic fracturing - that previously were not discernible," says David Eaton, professor of geophysics and co-author of the study with former postdoctoral scholar Xuewei Bao. The research holds promise for establishing new ways to assess risk and mitigate the hazards of earthquakes induced by hydraulic fracturing, and to help in developing science-informed regulations for such operations. Eaton and Bao collected and analyzed seismic data going back to the winter of 2015, when the first seismic event exceeding magnitude 4 on the Richter scale, occurred in the Fox Creek area. They compiled data from private and public seismograph stations in the area, monitors they installed after the earthquake, and also a comprehensive database of hydraulic fracturing data from each well in the area. Using state-of-the-art techniques, Bao and Eaton created a database of 905 distinct events, most of which were too small to be part of existing seismicity catalogues. They were able to link seismic events to specific operations at individual wells, thanks to Repsol Oil & Gas Canada Inc. and Canadian Discovery Ltd. who provided data for the study. This university-industry partnership is crucial for researchers to gain access to data and to understand the fundamental processes. "The combination of precise micro-earthquake locations and uniquely comprehensive data gave us an exquisitely detailed picture of the timing and dynamics of rupture nucleation," Eaton says. Bao, who did the "painstakingly detailed" data analysis, has since joined the faculty at Zhejiang University in China. Their image of seismic activity reveals a pre-existing but previously undetected fault system running parallel to two horizontally drilled wells. In one strand of the fault, hydraulic fracturing in both wells triggered small earthquakes by imposing mechanical stresses on the rock formations beneath the hydrocarbons-bearing zone - causing the fault to slip. In this case, movement on the fault effectively terminated when hydraulic fracturing operations ceased, consistent with existing regulatory protocols to halt operations under certain conditions," Eaton notes. However, in another strand of the fault - and more than two weeks after hydraulic fracturing injections had stopped - the magnitude 3.9 earthquake occurred at a calculated depth of just over four kilometres. This places the event within the upper levels of Precambrian basement rocks. Subsequent smaller seismic events persisted for a few months afterward, as the seismic activity migrated slowly from the basement back up toward the injection zone. The researchers' findings indicate that this persistent activity appears to be associated with infiltration of fracturing fluids into one strand of the fault. "We didn't expect to observe contrasting signatures for stress-induced and fluid-induced seismicity," Eaton says. "This distinction may have important ramifications for hazard mitigation, depending on which process is inducing seismic activity." Funding for this research came from Eaton's position as Industrial Research Chair in Microseismic System Dynamics, supported by NSERC and Chevron Canada Resources Ltd., together with additional support from ConocoPhillips, Nanometrics and Aqua Terra Water Management. Hydraulic fracturing involves injecting a high-pressure slurry of mainly water and sand into underground formations, creating a network of small cracks or fractures through which oil and natural gas can flow into wells. Hydraulic fracturing is one of four "Grand Challenges" in the university's energy strategy, Energy Innovations for Today and Tomorrow and in the recently awarded major initiative "Global Research Initiative in Sustainable Low Carbon Unconventional Resources" funded by the federal government program Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF). The University of Calgary has significant capacity and expertise in this area to reduce environmental impacts and improve efficiencies. About the University of Calgary The University of Calgary is making tremendous progress on its journey to become one of Canada's top five research universities, where research and innovative teaching go hand in hand, and where we fully engage the communities we both serve and lead. This strategy is called Eyes High, inspired by the university's Gaelic motto, which translates as 'I will lift up my eyes.' For more information, visit ucalgary.ca.

MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nanometrics Incorporated (NASDAQ:NANO), a leading provider of advanced process control systems, today announced financial results for its fiscal third quarter ended September 24, 2016. “Our results for the third quarter reflect continued investments in 3D-NAND, where we maintain robust market share positions with every major NAND manufacturer, augmented by strengthening contributions from our DRAM and Foundry customers,” commented Dr. Timothy J. Stultz, president and chief executive officer. “Our financial performance for the third quarter continued to perform well against our target business model, with operating margins, earnings per share and free cash flow performance each setting new five-year records. We expect that continued investments in 3D-NAND, DRAM and Foundry by our key customers in Q4 will result in second-half revenues that are meaningfully stronger than the first half, and round out the remainder of 2016 to comprise another sequential year in which our revenue growth significantly outperforms overall spending on wafer fab equipment.” Third Quarter 2016 Summary Revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were $58.7 million, up 5.3% from $55.8 million in the second quarter of 2016, and up 28.5% from $45.7 million in the third quarter of 2015. On a GAAP basis, gross margin was 51.8%, compared to 51.0% in the prior quarter and 48.6% in the year-ago period.  Operating income was $9.1 million, compared to $7.3 million in the prior quarter and $1.3 million in the year-ago period. Net income was $7.9 million or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to $6.0 million or $0.24 per diluted share in the prior quarter, and $0.8 million or $0.03 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2015. On a non-GAAP basis, which excludes amortization of acquired intangible assets, gross margin was 52.5%, compared to 51.8% in the prior quarter and 49.7% in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP operating income was $9.5 million compared to $7.8 million in the prior quarter and $1.8 million in the third quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP net income, which adjusts for amortization of intangible assets, was $8.3 million or $0.33 per diluted share, compared to $6.5 million or $0.26 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $1.3 million or $0.05 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2015. Business Outlook Management expects fourth-quarter 2016 revenues in the range of $54 to $59 million, with GAAP gross margin in the range of 50.7% to 51.8% and non-GAAP gross margin, which excludes the impact of amortization of acquired intangibles, in the range of 51.0% to 52.0%. Management expects fourth-quarter operating expenses to range between $20.8 million and $21.4 million on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. Management expects fourth-quarter earnings in the range of $0.21 to $0.30 per diluted share on a GAAP basis, and $0.22 to $0.31 per diluted share on a non-GAAP basis. Conference Call Details A conference call to discuss third quarter 2016 results will be held today at 4:30 p.m. EDT (1:30 p.m. PDT). To participate in the conference call, the dial-in numbers are (877) 374-4041 for domestic callers and (253) 237-1156 for international callers. The conference ID is 96265081. A live and recorded webcast and supplemental financial information will be made available on the investor page of the Nanometrics website at www.nanometrics.com. Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information The non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating income, operating income margin, net income, net income per share, which exclude certain expenses, charges and special items, and free cash flow, were not prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Management uses non-GAAP financial results, which exclude amortization of acquired intangibles assets, to evaluate the company’s ongoing performance and to enable comparison to other periods that did not include these items. The company believes the presentation of non-GAAP results is useful to investors for analyzing ongoing business trends, comparing performance to prior periods, and enhancing the investor’s ability to view the company’s results from management’s perspective; however, investors are cautioned that other companies may calculate these measures differently than Nanometrics does, which would limit the usefulness of these financial measures. A table presenting a reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is included at the end of this press release and is available on the investor page of the Nanometrics website at www.nanometrics.com.
