Modern asset management calls for continuous data on the operating conditions and status of the asset being monitored. Additionally, the user needs to be informed of any anomalous events detected either within or near the asset.
Distributed fibre optic sensing delivers a wide range of operational information with a measurement density not achievable using conventional technologies and gives 100% coverage of the asset being monitored. Additionally, the information is delivered with positional data that provides the operator with a detailed view at a sub-metre scale.
Distributed fibre optic sensing can deliver valuable temperature and acoustic information. This data can be further used to alert the operator to specific events such as leaks, slug detection, cable break and 3rd party intrusion.
