In-Well Distributed Fiber Optic Solutions for Reservoir Surveillance

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.

Distributed Acoustic Sensing for Geophysical Monitoring

This paper demonstrates how Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), a rapidly evolving fiber-optic based technology for permanent in-well and geophysical monitoring, has been used to record VSP data in multiple assets onshore Canada, USA, Europe, and the Middle East.
