In today’s volatile energy climate, it’s critical for Operators to minimize cost exposure while maximizing production. The high costs associated with offshore fields only magnifies the need to make intelligent, data-driven business decisions about their deepwater asset….Distributed acoustic sensing vertical seismic profiles (DAS VSPs) can provide a lower cost option than conventional OBN surveys. The DAS VSPs surveys enable frequent monitoring to observe water injector startup, and sweep performance for decisions on well-rate control, well treatment planning and optimized placement of infill wells. OptaSense was chosen to provide frequent time-lapse 3D DAS VSPs for detailed tracking of the water-flood as part of the operator’s enhanced oil recovery technique to optimize production in two reservoirs.
