Silixa Ltd Named as Finalist in World Oil Awards 2013

Silixa Ltd. is pleased to announce that its intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor™ has been selected as one of the finalists for the prestigious World Oil Awards in the category of Best Visualization and Collaboration Awards.

Silixa’s intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor (iDAS) has a remarkable impact on the industry as it uses a single fibre optic cable to effectively turn an entire well into an array of ‘digital ears’. This makes it possible to perform high accuracy repeat seismic without interrupting production or risking infrastructure by introducing invasive equipment.

In addition, the same iDAS data stream can be tuned to listen to the well itself. In doing so, data from the iDAS technology can optimise asset life span, improve safety and maximise resource production by offering real-time permanent in-well surveillance and distributed flow profiling in addition to on-demand seismic profiling.

The award will be announced at a gala dinner on 17th October, 2013.

Silixa Ltd. will begin global commercialisation of its game-changing fibre optic sensing technology after an equity investment of $ USD 8 million from Statoil Technology Invest (STI) and Chevron Technology Ventures (CTV). Building on earlier investment made by CTV and Lime Rock Partners, the latest investment cements Silixa’s position as a company with an exceptional potential for growth. Within five years, the company has blossomed from a garage start-up into a specialist service company backed by three of world’s leading private equity investors from the energy sector.

“We are very excited to make an equity investment in Silixa, which will strengthen what already is a strong cooperation between the two companies”, declared Sigurd Paulsen, STI’s Investment Director. “In addition to the technology being able to tell us precisely what is going on in the well at every location, we are also excited about its application in other areas of growing importance, such as pipeline and environmental monitoring.”

Trevor Burgess, Managing Director at Lime Rock Partners, hailed the deal as a “significant endorsement of the achievements made by Silixa’s management team in growing the company. We are delighted to have Statoil Technology Invest on board alongside Chevron Technology Ventures.”
