About the Workshop

Over the past 30 years, we have seen fibre optic sensing (FOS) progress from distributed temperature sensing (DTS) in the 1990s, to inclusion of optical-based pressure gauges, seismic accelerometers, flowmeters, and other various point sensors in the 2000s, to the introduction of distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) in the 2010s.

This evolution of the optical sensing system (fibres, cables, sensors, deployment, processing, and interpretation technologies) has yielded astoundingly better and novel quantitative well and reservoir monitoring results. These improvements have returned significant value for early project stages as well as throughout the asset lifetime. This workshop will address fibre-optic monitoring technologies used to optimize reservoir and field development and operations with focus on field case studies highlighting the value delivered in various areas including:

  • CCUS and green/renewable energy applications
  • Subsea and other offshore well and reservoir monitoring
  • Well integrity
  • Downhole flow quantification
  • Seismic applications

This workshop will be of interest to multiple disciplines including reservoir engineering, production engineering, well engineering, geology, and geophysics. Multiple networking opportunities are included in the schedule.

We will have speakers who are the leaders in FOS monitoring/surveillance technology implementation and use that will address how they use the technology to maximize asset value, with specific topics relevant to Europe/North Sea/Middle East energy producers.

For those unfamiliar with FOS: gain awareness of the applications and their value

For those actively working with FOS technology: learn the latest applications/capabilities

For FOS service providers and OEM sector: learn about the breadth of applications in monitoring and surveillance directly from the technology end-users

For all: network with peers in the oil & gas industry, FOS vendors and technology developers
