London, 16 January 2018

Silixa is delighted to learn it has been shortlisted for the Innovator Award in the SPE Offshore Achievement Awards 2018 for developing and commercializing the Carina® Sensing System. 

This exciting announcement celebrates the company’s commitment to delivering innovative solutions and remaining at the forefront of technology, both in terms of the core interrogator units and the applications that consume the data.

Silixa’s Carina Sensing System, born out of the company’s most complex and ambitious development project since the release of the original iDAS™ in 2009, represents a step change in performance and is expected to transform the way distributed sensing is used in the energy sector. The system can optimise asset life span, improve safety and maximise resource production by offering real-time permanent in well surveillance, on-demand seismic profiling as well as continuous well diagnostics throughout the life of the well.

In the offshore arena, the new system can enable long offset measurements as an alternative to subsea interrogator deployments for downhole DAS surveys in remote subsea wells.

“The Innovator Award shortlisting is a validation of the hard work of our extraordinary team as well as a recognition of our successful journey. Silixa was founded in a garage in London in 2007 to develop and commercialise the highest performing distributed optical fibre sensors. In 10 years we have grown to become a specialist service company operating in the global O&G market. We hope to win, but most certainly being nominated for the award is already a big honour. I would like to take this opportunity and congratulate all finalists.”- said Glynn Williams, Silixa’s Chief Executive Officer.

The very best of the industry will be celebrated, and winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday 22 March 2018 at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre.
