EPIC Meeting on Next Generation Distributed Sensing for the O&G industry at ADIPEC

12 November 2019

Abu Dhabi, UAE

sponsored by PULSe


Hosted at ADIPEC

The digitization and automation of oil and gas technology and growing need for efficiency, productivity and safety in operations offers more opportunities for the use of fiber optics in oil and gas.  New advances in distributed fiber optic sensing in upstream/midstream and downstream ends of pipe will be presented, followed by open discussions focusing on both the collaborations and supply chain needed for the deployment of the technology as well as its economic viability and return on investment. Some of the technologies presented will be Distributed Temperature and/or Strain Sensing (DTSS), Raman Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS), Distributed Acoustic/Vibration Sensing (DAS/DVS), Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG), low phase noise fiber laser modules,  etc. will be reviewed alongside with the developments in these technologies making the sensors more reliable and suitable for the critical processes and transport monitoring.
