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
