Permanent Monitoring (Oilfield Review)

Looking at lifetime reservoir dynamics


Efficient production of hydrocarbons requires a thorough understanding of reservoir behavior.

Permanent monitoring systems allow that behavior to be monitored continuously throughout the life of a reservoir.

Data from sensors placed downhole, close to the heart of production, may be transmitted directly to oil company offices enabling uninterrupted dynamic monitoring, without the need for costly well intervention.
