Luna Innovations, a global leader in advanced optical technology, announced a new production profiling capability based on Luna’s OptaSense fiber optic sensing products. The new capability is a result of the joint development and licensing of ConocoPhillips’ patented transient analysis technology in combination with Luna’s high-sensitivity, distributed temperature measurements.
The solution increases the accuracy of determining individual cluster oil production in unconventional wells and can be deployed with either permanent or temporary deployment options. This enables the identification of features in producing wells that are not easily detected by other temperature or acoustic sensing tools alone. Continuous refinement of the tools and increased deployment in the field is yielding an even clearer picture of producing conditions in various types of reservoirs.
“We are proud of our innovative and industry-enhancing relationship with ConocoPhillips to further expand the applications of fiber-optic technology in the Oil & Gas business worldwide,” said Luna’s President and CEO, Scott Graeff. “This collaboration provides us a key reservoir profiling solution that solidifies Luna’s position as the leader of fiber-based production monitoring services in the oil and gas market.”
Luna’s OptaSense products deliver a variety of technologies that provide analysis and answer products for completion and production optimization. Collaborations with industry partners like ConocoPhillips continue to grow not just the science but, more importantly, the commercialization of tools that are used to assess production in the most complex reservoirs.
