2024 SEG Workshop on Fiber Optics Sensing for Energy Applications

About

21–23 July 2024
Xi’an, China

Distributed fiber optic sensing is a rapidly developing technology with significant disruptive potential in multiple applications in many — if not all — of these activities. It allows the deployment of thousands of sensors that provide vital information about complex processes, enabling new optimization options and significant energy and cost savings. Fiber optic sensing can play a major role in monitoring energy production, distribution and CCS/CCUS.

The workshop will focus on recent developments in the area, including high-value use cases and technology drivers. We aim to bring together current and prospective technology end-users and problem owners, sensor hardware researchers tools, fibers, cables, interrogators and application experts for seismic imaging, downhole monitoring, etc. The workshop is designed to cater for professionals engaged in Energy Transition, this being from oil and gas, geothermal, coal industry, CCUS and other linked areas, including geoscientists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers, well completion, data scientists, and civil engineers. We are inviting industry practitioners and researchers in the fiber optic sensing area to contribute to the workshop.

As the planet attempts to cleaner, renewable energy, industry is looking for more cost-effective solutions to monitor reservoirs in a growing number of oil and gas field scenarios, but particularly in sectors outside the oil and gas industry, such as CO2 sequestration, gas storage including hydrogen, radioactive waste disposal or geothermal energy. The advent of affordable fiber optics technologies, including distributed acoustic sensing and some new generation 4C optical point sensors, has been a key factor in enabling more long-term downhole monitoring projects. In parallel, significant developments have taken place in surface seismic acquisition using nodes and DAS sensing, with many surveys being recorded simultaneously downhole. The multiple synergies between surface and downhole monitoring technologies make them increasingly attractive for reservoir imaging and monitoring projects.

The SEG plays a dynamic role in promoting technology and knowledge distribution and we are confident that the SEG workshop on Fiber Optics Sensing for Energy Applications, will be very rewarding for all participants to keep well-informed of rapidly evolving technologies. The SEG on Fiber Optics Sensing for Energy Applications brings together geoscientists from operating companies, contractors, equipment suppliers, academics and anyone interested in promoting and celebrating borehole geophysics in all its types. It will allow delegates to present their latest and will provide a valuable forum for networking with key individuals and organizations in this field.
