We study a problem of localization of an unknown event location relative to previously located events using a single monitoring array in a monitoring well. It has been shown that using the available information about the previously located events for locating new events is advantageous to localizing each event independently. We compare the performance of two previously proposed localization methods, double-difference and interferometry, in varying signal noise and velocity uncertainty, and propose a framework for selecting the optimal method for a given experiment.
