Silixa to present on distributed sensing based integrity monitoring at Jicable 2015 in Versailles, France on 21-25 June, 2015

Silixa Ltd. will be presenting on  distributed fibre optic sensing based integrity monitoring at the 9th International Conference on Insulated Cables in Versailles, France on 21-25 June, 2015.

The presentation will provide an explanation of the general principles of operation of the Intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor (iDAS™) and will focus on the current areas of interest and applications of this technology within the industry.

It will also explore current applications with reference to existing installations, and will provide information to enable the potential for future applications e.g. into the area of acoustic monitoring of partial discharge events on distributed assets and locally based assets.

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.

To learn more about our distributed fibre optic monitoring solutions visit us at booth 1067 or to arrange a meeting please contact

We look forward to seeing you!

Silixa to present at the GeoConvention 2015: New Horizons in Calgary, Canada on 6 May, 2015

Mick Longton, Silixa’s Commercial Director, will present on the potential of utilizing the intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor (iDAS™) and existing singlemode and multimode optical fibres for monitoring reservoir characteristics at the GeoConvention 2015: New Horizons in Calgary, Canada at 3.50 pm on 6 May, 2015. (Room: Telus 101-102)

Mick’s presentation will address the recent growth in need for distributed acoustic sensing based in-well applications, such as seismic surveys, flow profiling, frack operations and identification of well integrity issues.

With the proven ability to run the intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor (iDAS) on multimode (MM) fiber cables, a large number of wells in Canada which are currently instrumented with multimode (MM) optical fiber cables for Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) can now be utilized for a number of acoustic wellbore monitoring applications including three dimensional vertical seismic profiling (3D-VSP). Mick will present examples of iDAS measurements for a number of different optical fiber cable installations and compare the results of single-mode and multimode fibers with geophones.

GeoConvention 2015 is a geoscience-focused annual convention that provides a platform for industry professionals to expand their scientific horizons within the fields of geology, geophysics and well-logging by learning about the latest cutting edge technologies.

The three day event, which includes an exhibition and a technical program, will take place at the Telus Convention Centre on 4-6 May, 2015 in downtown Calgary.

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 manufactured sensors but utilises passive custom optical fibre cables resistant to harsh environments, including high temperature applications.

The use of Silixa’s iDAS and DTS systems in surface, seabed, and downhole applications allows a continuum of benefits extending to condition and integrity monitoring, all using the same optical fibre cable.

SPIE.DSS, the most important technical conference on optics, imaging, and sensing for defence, security, industry, health, and the environment, will host around 6,000 scientists and researchers from all over the world.
