Robust sensor provides high-quality data in most difficult environments
The sensing element, the fibre optic cable, is permanently installed in the borehole. It is designed to operate in corrosive and high temperature environments, and no maintenance is required since it does not included electronics or moving parts.
Multiple measurements, based on a single fibre optic cable: temperature, strain, microseismic, induced seismicity, flow profiling, can be acquired easily. The system is a reliable, long-term monitoring solution that maximises efficiency and enables optimised geothermal energy production.
High resolution data offers accurate insights into the reservoir
High resolution distributed acoustic, temperature and strain data provide unparalleled high-spatial resolution measurements every 0.12 to 1.0 m along the fibre optic cable. This translates as reliable insight into the reservoir.
Unmanned and continuous or on-demand operations
Carina GeoTH can operate remotely and autonomously, providing continuous thermal, hydraulic, and mechanical reservoir parameters. This enables operators to optimise geothermal operations.
Cost-effective solution with large coverage, uninterrupted operations and no maintenance
Carina GeoTH is a highly flexible monitoring system offering continuous or on-demand data over large distances, 10s of kilometres, allowing to monitor multiple wells with a single interrogator.
Further cost-savings are delivered by uninterrupted operations.
As the fibre is the sensor and there are no electronic and moving parts, there is no requirement for maintenance either.
Real-time processing and visual presentation of acoustic, strain, and temperature data for informed decision making
An Integrated Edge Processing System allows real-time data processing and visualisation allowing fast decision making based on accurate reservoir conditions.
Environmental monitoring for enhanced safety and sustainability
Carina GeoTH is a reliable and proven continuous monitoring solution that delivers reliable information on microseismic, induced seismicity, and well integrity assessment.
This verifies and assures safety of operations and supports communication with the stakeholders, hence it helps our customers meet their legal, social, and environmental obligations.
It is an environmentally safe solution with reduced carbon footprint
The enhanced sensitivity of the underlying technology, the Carina® Sensing System, combined with the engineered Constellation™ optical fiber, provide the opportunity to use much smaller and permanently installed seismic sources. This reduces the environmental impact as it eleminates the need for large vibe trucks and repeated mobilization of technical teams.
