Silixa to attend the first EAGE workshop on Fibre Optic Sensing, Reservoir and Production Monitoring

Connect with us at the first EAGE Workshop on Fibre Optic Sensing, Reservoir and Production Monitoring in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on 9-11 March 2020.

Advancements in fibre optic sensing technologies have led to increased use in reservoir and production monitoring applications within the energy industry. Distributed-sensing techniques allow for wide measurement aperture of physical properties such as temperature, pressure, strain and acoustics with increased accuracy and cost-effectiveness in geoscience applications.

This workshop is to solidify the understanding of fibre optic sensing technologies within the geoscience community.

Silixa exhibiting at the SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition in The Woodlands, TX, USA on 4-6 February 2020

Silixa will be exhibiting at the SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition in The Woodlands, TX, USA on 4-6 February 2020.

We have introduced the world’s first fiber optic intervention hydraulic fracture monitoring service, Carina® XwellXpress™. The service allows for the real-time monitoring of the build-up of poro-elastic strain, identification of frac hits, while accurately co-locating microseismic events, and collecting high-quality seismic data. This enables operators to optimize well spacing and change frac designs on the fly to improve production and reduce overall completion costs.

To see how we can expand your hydraulic fracture monitoring and seismic acquisition options please visit us at our stand #109 or email gina.elesztos@silixa.com to arrange a meeting.

The SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition showcases existing and new hydraulic fracturing technologies, using experiences from fracture-stimulated wells, and the application of global learnings.

Silixa presenting at AGU’s Fall Meeting in San Francisco on 9-13 December 2019

Join our presentation on Shallow seismic methods for monitoring soil structure on canal erosion using Fiber Optic Distributed Acoustic Sensor (DAS) at AGU in San Francisco on 9 December 2019.

The presentation will detail a case study on leakage detection where the leakage occurs through the protective clay layer lining the water bottom of canals. In order to maintain and improve the quality of water ways, understanding of the surface water – groundwater – sediment – subsurface interaction is important. Fibre Optic Distributed Acoustic Sensor (DAS) has been demonstrated to be capable of dense spatial sampling in order to determine small scale geological and geotechnical characterisation in the shallow subsurface.

The results of the case study indicate that fibre-optic distributed sensing can be a future toolkit for sediment related applications, such us sediment transport and canal lining erosion detection.
