Course Description

This comprehensive introduction to Distributed Temperature Sensing will cover the latest about this amazing and somewhat new technology. Temperature surveys can be taken non-obtrusively in a well, and a temperature log is recorded continuously along the well depth in real time, and at time intervals as small as a few minutes between surveys. This time lapse monitoring capability allows an otherwise difficult-to-interpret temperature log to easily pinpoint production changes.

These DTS systems use a fiber optic line placed in a well typically as a semi-permanent installation along the well length. Such systems have found application in high cost horizontal and multilateral wells where re-entry with a logging tool is difficult if not impossible. They are also commonly used in shallow steam injection environments to monitor steam breakthrough in producing wells. There exists a host of non-oilfield applications for this technology. Topics covered include the following:

  • Introduction to DTS
  • Fiber Optic Technology for DTS Measurements
  • Typical DTS Installations and Recordings
  • Oil Well Installations and Hardware
  • Application/Interpretation of DTS in Oil/Gas Wells
  • Quality Control
  • Plato Software Demonstration
