Production Flow Monitoring

Maximize returns with real-time
production flow monitoring

It’s difficult to optimize reservoir planning and management when you’re unsure of the inflow profile along the reservoir. OptaSense production flow monitoring services add critical mass in your production efforts by allowing you to monitor in-flow along the production zone, artificial lift performance, and wellbore integrity for the life of your asset.
Reduce time to production
Why waste time and money performing well interventions when there's a solution that won't interfere with production and profitability. OptaSense Production Flow Monitoring is a cost-effective alternative that delivers on-demand monitoring for the life of your asset.

Leveraging fiber, permanently installed to the casing, tubing or deployed using coiled tubing, our production flow monitoring service reduces the risk and interruption associated with conventional production logging, not to mention the reliance on hard to interpret and difficult to deploy production logging tools.

Using innovative Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology, this service pinpoints non-producing zones to improve future completion design or re-stimulation programs. With this insight you can enrich your reservoir model by evaluating the long term reservoir response to completion and production applications.

Understand production at the perforation level
Struggling with inconsistent production? Production can vary well to well, even stage to stage. OptaSense Production Flow Monitoring uses DAS technology to assess flow behavior across the length of your wellbore, at the perforation level. With this insight you can identify perforations contributing to production in real time, as well as quantify flow through each perforation and/or port.
Monitor production for the life of the well
Leveraging permanently installed fiber and topside DAS equipment, our service provides on-demand flow profiles of your well. Flow data is generated at each perforation cluster and historical waterfall data is recorded and processed. With repeat measurements, this information can be used to monitor the effectiveness of each perforation entry point, throughout the life of your well.

Enable predictive maintenance
This service provides the condition monitoring necessary to support predictive maintenance and lower lifting costs by listening to production flow across artificial lift valves and pumps. With this knowledge, you can monitor the health of the electrical submersible pumps, identify relevant flow regimes and confirm the opening and closing of gas lift valves. Furthermore, our technology can assist in the confirming the proper function and activation of a wide range of smart well completion equipment.

Did you know

By permanently installing fiber behind the casing, OptaSense Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing (DFOS) allows you to acquire borehole seismic data, profile hydraulic fractures and monitor production flow in real time, for the life of your asset.

This means while monitoring production, you can perform 4D Vertical Seismic Profiling (VSP) and time-lapse imaging to monitor and evaluate the impact of production on the reservoir over time. This provides the insight to evaluate enhanced oil recovery placement and efficiency for optimal refracturing operations.
