Silixa provides distributed fibre optic monitoring solutions with high levels of accuracy on existing or new fibre installations. Our distributed sensing solutions apply the power of real-time distributed acoustic sensing (iDAS™) and distributed temperature sensing (ULTIMA™ DTS) to measure and monitor conditions within wellbores and other assets. Our reliable results and proven track record enable our clients to make informed decisions. MORE

Distributed fibre optic sensing means a single cable can be used for multiple applications such as borehole seismic, fracture monitoring, flow profiling, leak detection, and well integrity.

Oil & Gas

Our range of downhole sensing applications and enabling technologies make Silixa the right choice for permanent reservoir and well monitoring.

Modern pipeline surveillance calls for pipeline integrity, real-time leak detection and threat identification. Optical fibre based distributed sensing revolutionises pipeline monitoring.

Pipeline Surveillance

Our technology offers continuous pipeline integrity monitoring by simultaneously detecting intrusion and leak events along the pipeline.

The Silixa Surface Flow Meter enables real-time monitoring of fluid flow within the pipe, and measures the fluid velocity for single and two-phase flow.

Flow Metering

The sensing fibre can be attached to the exterior of a pipe (non-intrusive) to monitor the fluid composition and velocity within the pipe.

Our fibre optic technologies offer opportunities for innovative sensing applications where the processes being observed operate on ranges from centimetres to kilometres.

Distributed Sensing

Our monitoring solutions provide the highest spatial & temporal resolution for data capture over large surfaces and long lengths.

Silixa to present at the 4th European Flow Measurement Workshop in Noordwijk, Netherlands on 29-31 March, 2016

Silixa will be presenting material co-authored with Roxar on Multiphase, Multizone Flowmetry via Eddy Tracking and Sound Speed Measurement using a Distributed Acoustic Sensing System at the 4th European Flow Measurement Workshop in Noordwijk, Netherlands on 29-31 March, 2016. Flowmetry using DAS can be performed unobtrusively via a single sensing fibre wrapped densely on the exterior of a pipe. Using this geometric arrangement, DAS output can be interpreted for information relating to both eddy convection and[...]

What is distributed sensing?

Distributed sensing is a technology that enables continuous, real-time measurements along the entire length of a fibre optic cable. Unlike traditional sensors that rely on discrete sensors measuring at pre-determined points, distributed sensing does not rely upon manufactured sensors but utilises the optical fibre. Read more
