a fiber optic sensing technology enabling efficient down hole fossil fuel recovery
A priori knowledge on the chemical composition of fluids recovered down hole over long distances and under harsh conditions have become essential for efficient production optimization. Together with Shell, TNO has developed and matured an in-situ monitoring technology named Distributed Chemical Sensing (DCS). DCS is a monitoring technology based on fiber optic sensing for the reversible detection of H2O, CO2 and H2S molecules in diverse media and under extreme conditions. Modifications of the technology, tailored to applications outside the oil and gas industry, are currently being considered and is open for discussion.
