Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop.
Plan your attendance to other SPE events in your region or technical area.
This workshop addressed fiber-optic monitoring technologies that are used to optimize reservoir and field development and operations. Focus was on four aspects of this sensing technology: value realized from fiber-optic measurements, particularly when integrated with other diagnostic and surveillance measurements; strategies and workflows for creating value with these measurements; technology and business gaps which prevent or reduce the likelihood of operators using fiber optics to a greater extent; and opportunities that may be created when these gaps are mitigated.
Extensive case studies and field deployment examples demonstrated technical and economic benefits and provide guidance for developing workflows and identifying best practices. The sessions included such applications as integrating distributed fiber optic data with that from other monitoring technologies for completion & stimulation diagnostics, interpretation of flow using DAS and DTS, advances in fiber-based acquisition for bore-hole seismic, optimization of well and reservoir performance in thermal projects and integrity monitoring for infrastructure, well completion and reservoir geomechanics.
