Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Fiber Optic (FO) technology is quite unique for diagnostic evaluation of wells as the fiber can be used in multiple ways. Initially, application of fiber for in-well technology concentrated on temperature profiling. This limited its application to processes with strong thermal signatures. More recently the use of fiber for acoustics and strain measurements has expanded the applicability of distributed fiber sensing to other areas of data acquisition and well management. In this presentation we will explain the principles behind fiber optic sensing, provides examples of multiple FO application ranging from seismic to production profiling. This will be followed by several examples in which Distributed Acoustics Sensing (DAS) and Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) have been used for Frac Efficiency Monitoring. During this presentation we will be highlighting the importance and benefits of data integration between DAS and DTS as well as with other data such as Microseismic and PLTs. Finally we will summarize current views on deployment options and fiber durability.
