SPE Workshop: Fiber-Optic Sensing Applications for Well, Reservoir, and Asset Management 31 Aug - 2 Sep 2020 Loews Coronado Bay Resort San Diego, California, USA

This Workshop has been CANCELLED due to the challenges in the industry caused by the current restrictions on travel and public health concerns.

SPE holds numerous events around the world and we continually monitor conditions that might affect participants.

For the past 30 years, fiber optic sensing (FOS) has progressed from distributed temperature sensing (DTS) in the 1990s, to fiber optic-based pressure gauges and flowmeters in the 2000s, to distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) in the 2010s. The evolution of the optical sensing system including sensors, gauges, fibers, cables, deployment, processing and interpretation technologies have yielded astoundingly better and novel quantitative well and reservoir monitoring results. These improvements have shown to return significant value at early project stages as well as throughout the producing asset lifetime.



This workshop will address fiber-optic monitoring technologies used to optimize reservoir and field development and operations. Field case studies will highlight new or enhanced technical applications, including:


  • VSP and microseismic
  • hydraulic fracture stimulation diagnostics
  • reservoir geomechanics
  • well and infrastructure integrity
  • downhole flow quantification
  • workflows, data management and analytics

The keynote focus will include a panel discussion of identified value from FOS, technical and business gaps that have limited FOS deployment, and ways to glean additional value. 

There will be participation from operators, service companies and the OEM sector (instrumentation, fiber, cables, etc.)  with multiple networking opportunities.
