Redefining the limits of what is possible, we improve performance, reduce operational costs and extend the lifespan of any asset. Applying the power of the world’s highest performing distributed acoustic sensing (iDAS™ and Carina® Sensing System) and temperature sensing (ULTIMA™ DTS, XT-DTS) technologies, we deliver distributed fibre optic monitoring solutions on both new and existing cable installations with the highest levels of accuracy in the industry. 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.

Silixa’s Process Metering enables non-invasive flow measurement in several pipes simultaneously using a single, continous length of optical fibre.

Process Metering

Non-intrusive metering for all plant flows with a single fibre, regardless of pipe material or flow type.

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.

The case for (lots of) new sensing technologies in mining plants

The case for (lots of) new sensing technologies in mining plants

It takes a while to introduce new technologies in mining. Part of the challenge is budgetary; in 2015, EY, reported that the mining and metals sector spends 90% less on technology and innovation than the petroleum sector [1]. However, that stark contrast needs to be put into context. The market for major metals and minerals is something like US$660BN/yr, which is only about 1/3rd of the world wide oil market [2]. Further, the relative CAPEX[...]

Silixa announces PRODML DAS 2.0 implementation

  Silixa is pleased to announce the implementation of PRODML DAS 2.0 from Energistics¹ in its Carina® Sensing System. PRODML is a set of standards for handling complex data types, ensuring efficient data management between service providers and operating companies. It provides a way to share standardised DAS and DTS data sets. PRODML 2.0 has been defined, developed and maintained by an open consortium involving specialists from member companies and organisations that are part of the global upstream[...]

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

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.

Process 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.
