Fiber optic temperature monitoring optimizes water injection, well production
The oil and gas industry continues to trend more and more toward a real-time business, and defining what that term means. The increasing complexity of completions and availability of measurements, in the drive to optimally drain reservoirs, means that operators are forced to become proactive in their quest for information. This applies to both fine-tuning the well and making more informed, large-scale recovery decisions. Fiber optic measurement technology, used in gathering various downhole data, is becoming more accepted by the industry with every installation. When combined with other permanent downhole sensors, the information results in current knowledge of the well’s performance throughout its life, as well as using the data to optimize future well designs. Such information, in addition to optimizing production, can reduce or eliminate expensive intervention procedures.
