EAGE Workshop on Fiber Optic Sensing for Energy Applications in Asia Pacific

9 - 11 November 2020, Online

About the Workshop

Distributed fiber-optic sensing (DFOS) is the way of utilising single optical fiber to measure physical parameters along its length by sending laser pulses into it and analysing the scattered light returning from the fiber. Range of properties which can be derived includes dynamic strain, vibration, temperature, components of electromagnetic field and even chemical composition of the medium. Optical fibers packaged in different cables can be deployed in deep wells, conduits, directly buried in the ground, laid on the sea floor or attached to different objects. Relatively low cost, minimal space requirements and ability to withstand harsh conditions make optical fiber a very versatile sensor with multiple different applications, like seismic imaging and monitoring, hydrocarbon production and hydrofracking monitoring, surface platform and plant facilities, pipeline and railway surveillance, and many-many others.

EAGE Workshop on Fiber Optic Sensing for Energy Applications in Asia Pacific will focus on promoting the use of technology in the area. We aim to bring together lead researchers developing sensing tools, fibers, cables, interrogators, experts in application of DFOS to seismic imaging, downhole monitoring, etc., and current and prospective users of the technology. The workshop is designed to cater for professionals from oil and gas, coal industry, CCUS and other linked areas, including geoscientists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers, well completion and civil engineers.
