In this paper recent field trials are discussed to demonstrate the value of these novel in-well fiber optic applications. These trials highlight the benefit of integrated data interpretation and the versatility of applications that are possible using fiber optic installations in wells. The applications shown are the use of the DSS for inflow profiling in a water injector in a deepwater asset, gas flow monitoring by combined interpretation of DAS and DTS data, and the first offshore applications of DAS for borehole seismic in Shell.
