The TMS-Kvant+ fiber-optic distributed temperature monitoring system of IRZ was designed for super-viscous oil applications. The equipment monitors temperature of reservoir during heating to ensure optimization of steam injection and increase efficiency of oil production.
The system consists of:
Despite of common temperature sensors which measure local point temperatures, this system registers temperature profile along the entire fiber-optic cable — this is how a thermogram is created.
Thereby, it is possible to conduct well monitoring during transient processes or in operation, which cannot be done by conventional techniques. To obtain a thermogram from a fiber-optic cable, it takes only a couple of minutes, while depth of the well can reach 6 kilometers.
Main features of TMS-Kvant+ system:
At the same time, the surface equipment is installed directly on the well pad in the open air and can be operated in harsh conditions at ambient temperatures from –60 to +50 °С.
Since 2016, TMS-Kvant+ has been supplied to Russian oil & gas companies and has been successfully operated in super-viscous oil fields.
35 systems have already been installed; they serve 120 production wells.All News
