Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR INTERFEROMETRIC ACOUSTIC MONITORING OF CONDUITS, WELLBORES OR RESERVOIRS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS PERMETTANT UNE SURVEILLANCE ACOUSTIQUE INTERFÉROMÉTRIQUE DE CONDUITES, DE TROUS DE FORAGE OU DE RÉSERVOIRS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)This disclosure relates in general to a method and system for monitoring a conduit (10), a wellbore or a reservoir associated with hydrocarbon production or transportation and/or carbon dioxide sequestration. More specifically, but not by way of limitation, embodiments of the present invention provide for using an optical fiber (5) as a distributed interferometer that may be used to monitor (30) the conduit, wellbore or reservoir (10).
(FR)L'invention porte, de manière générale, sur un procédé et sur un système de surveillance d'une conduite (10), d'un puits de forage ou d'un réservoir associé à la production ou au transport d'hydrocarbures et/ou à la séquestration de dioxyde de carbone. De façon plus précise, mais non à titre limitatif, les modes de réalisation de la présente invention concernent l'utilisation d'une fibre optique (5) en tant qu'interféromètre distribué qui peut être utilisé pour surveiller (30) la conduite, le trou de forage ou le réservoir (10).
