OptaSense fiber-optic sensing technology provides key insights that allow you to optimize fracture program designs and mitigate operational issues while completing the well.

Completions Monitoring Services

Real-Time Hydraulic Fracture Monitoring

For the insight you need to extract the most value from your well, OptaSense hydraulic fracture profiling services monitor stage performance in real time at the perforation level. Using optical fibers to acquire acoustic and temperature measurements continuously along the length of your well, our technology helps you determine fluid and proppant uptake volumes per stage and perforation cluster. This service also identifies inter-stage communication leading to under and over stimulated stages. This information can be used to determine diversion techniques or alternate stage spacing, as well as to fine-tune perforation designs for optimal cluster efficiency.

Real-Time Crosswell Strain Monitoring

Real-time assessment of the communication between neighboring wells during a fracture treatment can be used to optimize well spacing. This also helps to reduce environmental risk because of inter-wellbore communication. With dynamic pico-strain sensitivity, DAS is used to measure minute deformation on neighboring fibered wellbores due to strain changes in the formation caused by fracturing.

Real-Time Microseismic Monitoring

OptaSense fiber-optic sensing can also enable permanent borehole microseismic monitoring, especially of those larger magnitude events that originate at existing fault locations. Because of the broad bandwidth and high dynamic range capabilities of OptaSense technology, the large, low frequency seismic signals generated at existing fault locations can be accurately measured. In deviated wells, the long-array sensing aperture enables geolocation of recorded microseismic events.
