Many types of industrial activity require the subsurface injection of fluids. Seismic activity induced by fluid injection has become a topic of increasing concern in recent years. In order to mitigate this issue, models capable of simulating injection-induced seismicity are required. In this paper we outline two contrasting model approaches: a statistics-based approach and a numerical modeling approach. We apply both model types to different case studies, and evaluate the advantages and drawbacks of each model type.
