Diagnostic Intervention Services

OptaSense Diagnostic Intervention Services is a cost-effective solution that delivers advanced monitoring of reservoir and wellbore through cutting-edge Distributed Temperature Sensing and Distributed Acoustic Sensing technologies.

Working in partnership with leading oilfield service companies, OptaSense can provide its services in existing wells utilizing fiber-optic enabled slickline, wireline, coil tubing, and carbon rod. Temporary deployment of advanced Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) and Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) monitoring capability is more efficient and cost effective for monitoring dynamic production or reservoir response than other conventional monitoring methods. The OptaSense Diagnostic Intervention Services enables operators to see real-time DTS and DAS results for injection and production distribution. In addition, real-time fracture visualization through strain and microseismic monitoring allows operators to improve stimulation and completion design to maximize recovery.

Deployment Solutions

The first step in acquiring quality results is getting a fiber-optic cable in the well to capture the information. Historically, operators utilize fiber-optic solutions for the life of their asset via permanent installation cemented behind casing. Permanently installed fiber-optic cables provide full life-of-well analysis, but it’s not always possible to place this system in legacy wells.

Despite the continuous growth in the application and installation of permanent fiber optics among global operators in new wells, there are still a vast majority of existing wells that can benefit from the array of distributed fiber-optic sensing DAS and DTS applications. Temporary intervention deployment solutions, such as slickline, e-line, and coiled tubing enable retrievable fiber-optic services that provide acquisition and analysis of results “on demand” in almost any environment. Access to temporary deployment of fiber-optic cables increases operational flexibility and reduces cost without compromising quality. Fiber-optic solutions are flexible and low-cost alternatives for real-time completion diagnostics allowing operators to understand and optimize their unconventional development.

Benefits of Diagnostic Intervention Services

Increased Flexibility

  • Conveyance in multiple wells as required to support co-location of events
  • Fibered wireline flexibility – conventional, pump down, or tractor conveyance
  • Acquired in combination with traditional microseismic monitoring for full wellbore coverage
  • Combined with an offset permanent fiber well, the value of strain and microseismic locations are enhanced

Reduced Cost

  • Monitoring of multiple wells for the same cost as a single well permanent-fiber installation

Uncompromised Quality

  • High-quality data extraction through the use of OptaSense equipment
