World first installation of a fibre optic acoustic sensor for reservoir monitoring

Fotech Solutions has installed the world’s first dedicated downhole distributed acoustic optical fibre system using the company’s new and unique Helios monitoring solution. The Helios distributed acoustic monitoring system was installed in a coal-bed methane well in Scotland for Composite Energy Ltd. of Stirling, UK. The easily-installed Helios system can be deployed in a range of applications in the global oil and gas industry including reservoir surveillance, production monitoring, integrity assurance, flowline movement, flow assurance and leak detection. The system was installed in August 2009 and has already provided valuable data including: Downhole pump condition monitoring; Location of water level; Flow profiles across the production intervals; Vibrations at the wellhead; and Gas flow.
