WellSense - Fibreline Intervention

Project summary

This project is supporting WellSense to develop and deploy a distributed acoustic and temperature log (DAS/DTS) using the company's FibreLine Intervention (FLI).

The system provides a low-cost option to deploy fibreoptic cable into a wellbore to capture distributed temperature and acoustic readings, as well as single point pressure and temperature from the body of the tool.

The project includes a field trial of the distributed temperature technology which, if successful, will provide information that can be used to better manage or optimise production. The data captured may also provide an understanding of the well integrity, which could help reduce decommissioning costs in the future.

Potential Industry Value

This project will provide access to data that will allow informed well management decisions to be made. Applying this technology to approximately 25% of a potential 40 wells per year could save £200K per well for data gathering and avoid further well-shut ins, saving a further £2million per well @ $50/bbl oil price.

In total this has the potential to save the UKCS around £22million per year.
