Tech 101 Series – Downhole Distributed Fibre Optic Sensing Overview: Permanent, Temporary and Disposable Solutions

July 25 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm



The SPE Young Professionals Tech101 series is an event primarily targeted at entry to mid-level engineers within the oil and gas community, to provide “101” level education on topics across the industry. Professionals of all experience levels are open to come, but keep in mind materials presented are catered to young professionals.

This event is free to sign up for online attendance to the event.


Distributed Fibre Optic Sensing (DFOS) is a powerful in well diagnostic tool with a decades long track record in downhole Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) and Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) applications. DFOS is well-matched to the data age, providing full well datasets over full well lifecycles, which are increasingly used to optimise asset performance and return on investment. An introduction to the principals of DFOS is followed by use case examples including seismic, production enhancement, well integrity, P&A and CCUS. The presentation covers permanent fibre optic installations, predominantly used in high value wells, temporary fibre solutions via rigless intervention, and the more recent developments in disposable fibre optic systems which make DFOS a diagnostic option for almost all wells.

Speaker – Rob Crawford

Rob started in the industry as a Rigless Intervention Tools Design and Test Engineer in Dorset, England and Houston, before moving into a global Completions Engineering role with Smith International and then SLB Operations Support Manager in Houston. Rob left SLB to co-found DTI, designing and manufacturing innovative rigless intervention tools. After moving DTI into the FrontRow Group Rob moved to Perth and joined sister company Well-SENSE in March 2023.
