Advances of Fiber Optics Sensing in the Oil and Gas IndustryBy Brugg Cables
With the International Energy Agency forecasting an increase in global energy demand of 50% by the year 2030, new hydrocarbons resources must be accessed. Production and transportation of energy has to take place in ever more demanding situations: soil instabilities, permafrost, tectonic activity, zero impact on fisheries and terrestrial fauna, human intrusion risk, need of complex LNG assets real time control, high temperatures employed in steam enhanced heavy oil recovery methods, ultra deep-water operation.
Fiber optics sensing affirmed itself as a versatile and cost-effective technology able to evaluate the mechanical health of large structures and perform reliable damage assessment, which are mandatory in order to optimise energy production and transfer.
