Distributed Fiber-Optic Sensors Characterize Flow-Control-Device Performance

The complete paper describes piloting the collection and analysis of distributed temperature and acoustic sensing (DTS and DAS, respectively) data to characterize flow-control-device (FCD) performance and help improve understanding of steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) inflow distribution.

The complete paper describes piloting the collection and analysis of distributed temperature and acoustic sensing (DTS and DAS, respectively) data to characterize flow-control-device (FCD) performance and help improve understanding of steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) inflow distribution. Fiber-optic-based instrumentation was deployed within FCD-equipped active wells using permanently installed coiled tubing. Logs were performed on multiple wells during stable and transient flowing conditions. Additionally, acoustic recording using flow-loop testing was completed with accelerometers, geophones, and fiber-optic cables during FCD characterization.
