Philippe Legrand is part of the Intelligent Production Systems group of Baker Hughes.  He joined the company in 2008, and is Baker Hughes’ Fiber Optic Product Line Manger.  His responsibilities include defining the IPS fiber optic strategy and introducing new technologies and services.


 


Prior to joining Baker Hughes, Mr. Legrand worked over nine years with various fiber optics suppliers and instrumentation manufacturers. His experience ranges from subsea connectors, subsea distribution, subsea tree penetrator systems, umbilical terminations to offshore and land well instrumentation with fiber optic Pressure Temperature gauges, DTS, as well as opening sales and manufacturing offices. He has several patents being filed and has published a papers related to fiber optic sensing technologies.


 


Most recently he has been active in permanent monitoring solutions such as fiber optic pressure/temperature gauges, high-temperature applications, DTS and real time compaction monitoring (RTCM), and fiber optic downhole wet connects.


 


Mr Legrand is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).  He holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M and a Master of Science in Engineering Management from NTU (remote branch of Colorado State). When he is not involved with fiber optics, Philippe enjoys riding his bike with friends to BBQs and authentic restaurants of interest, ice hockey, traveling and reading.    


Full Description
For more than 15 years, fiber optic monitoring tools have been used to acquire real time data as to optimize production, monitor well and infrastructure conditions. Fiber optics based monitoring systems have been deployed to provide downhole characteristics, assurance on the completion and production monitoring and infrastructure for both land and offshore wells.
 
This presentation will review some of the advantages of fiber optic based monitoring systems, fiber optic tools and interrogation techniques such as distributed temperature sensing (DTS), Pressure Temperature (PT) sensors, Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG’s), Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) from the early adoption days to the ground breaking developments and deployments which the industry has seen in the past few months such as deployment of a down hole wet connect, strain monitoring of completions, and real time compaction monitoring systems.
 
This presentation will further cover the applications and benefits of the mentioned fiber optic sensing tools, field specific challenges (temperature, monitoring distances, offsets), choices of fibers for the specific environment, and environmental impacts for the fiber optic monitoring system.
