The unmatched extra high sensitivity and precision of both the acoustic and temperature sensing systems enable us to acquire data with unparalleled precision, which form the bases for our remote and autonomous monitoring systems. They deliver accurate information to the operators to enhance safety and efficiency while keeping the cost components under control.
Carina® Sensing System, the precision engineered distributed acoustic sensing system that delivers a 20dB or 100x improvement in signal to noise ratio compared to other existing DAS systems, has enabled pioneering monitoring applications, including passive seismic monitoring, which are only possible with this breakthrough performance.
As the sensing element is the fibre, multiple measurements can be acquired on the same fibre through the life of the asset.
In geothermal applications, Silixa’s fibre optic monitoring systems provide sophisticated information on rock mechanics and hydrology at work, hence maximizing production of electricity from geothermal wells.
Delivering detailed information on fracture networks means hydrothermal reservoirs can be operated more efficiently, and enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) harnessed to expand the geothermal sector as a whole. This can lead to the scalable deployment of renewable base load power generation from geothermal on a broader scale.
The unmatched precision and repeatable large scale permanent reservoir monitoring capability make Silixa’s systems a natural fit for hydrates monitoring, which are of interest from both environmental and economic standpoints.
Silixa’s multi-application solutions for the industrial, earth sciences, and subsea oil/gas sectors offer benefits for wind energy development as well. Deep technical expertise combined with large scale capital project knowhow and capability for monitoring over extremely long ranges are well suited for the offshore wind sector.
Biofuels production is often coupled with generation of CO2. Carina® CarbonSecure reservoir monitoring can be deployed to both reduce emissions and improve project economics.
