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 will be exhibiting at the annual Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, USA on 4 -7 May, 2015

Our team is looking forward to hosting you at our booth and presenting you the latest advancements in pipeline surveillance. Silixa’s distributed fibre optic sensing makes it possible for operators to detect intrusion and locate leaks within minutes of their occurrence hence minimising the time-to-detection and bringing down intervention costs. Our intelligent Pipeline Surveillance System (iPSS) offers unrivalled sensitivity & positional accuracy which cannot be achieved using other technologies.

Silixa presenting at SPIE.DSS 2015 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA on 23 April, 2015

Silixa will be presenting on distributed fibre optic temperature and distributed fibre optic acoustic sensing for remote and harsh environments at SPIE.DSS 2015 in Baltimore, Maryland on 23 April, 2015. (Paper 9491-13, Session 4: Optical Sensing Technology for Harsh Environments II, time: 2:10:00 PM.) Advances in opto-electronics and associated signal processing have enabled the development of optical fibre distributed acoustic and temperature sensors. Unlike systems relying on discrete optical sensors a distributed system does not rely upon[...]
