Happy Motivation Monday! Here is a great TED talk about the power of vulnerability to get your week started!
Happy Fiber Optic Friday everyone!!
Fiber Optics have been used in the oil and gas industry since the 1990’s to help with digital temperature sensing. Now another type of fiber optic sensor, the distributed accounting sensor (DAS), has been gaining popularity and is going to add value to the fiber optic sensors currently used to monitor wells, oil and gas pipelines, and reservoirs. These sensors will help with pipeline leak detection.
They have been working to fully develop this since 2007 and it is now starting to take off!! The sensing technology includes pressure and temperature gauges, distributed temperature sensing, array temperature sensing, flow measurement and seismic sensors. Since fiber optics are immune to electromagnetic interference, these monitors are a lot more accurate. The fiber optics are able to act as the sensing method and the transmission medium!! Another advantage to fiber optics is that they are able to be used at high temperatures and in high pressure environments.
Though the declining gas prices may cause a problem for funding, researchers believe that they will not affect their research of fiber optics and the technology of the DAS will continue on. Want to continue the fiber optic Friday fun?! Read more on Rigzone!
