The DataSphere® LinX® monitoring system provides real-time reservoir and well integrity monitoring in subsea wells without the need to halt production. LinX monitoring sensors are permanently placed behind well barriers and communicate through the casing wirelessly, monitoring integrity and formation pressure — without making changes to the drilling program, altering the well design or compromising well integrity.
Not big data — the right data
Too often, operators pay a lot for inaccurate data that is gathered periodically and by halting production. The LinX monitoring system enables you to capture accurate data without halting production. Using permanent, behind-casing sensors and an inductive coupler to monitor B-Annulus and the reservoir in real time, the LinX system provides continuous data on well integrity and pressures even during injections.
Well and cement integrity
B-Annulus pressure in subsea tension-leg platform wells
Overburden pressure regimes
Caprock pressure and temperature
Injection pressures on the formation
In-situ reservoir pressures
Pore pressure over the life of the well
Barrier integrity between isolated zones
Accurate well and reservoir data
Customizable to any well design: single- and multi-zone; intelligent; standard; subsea; dry tree
Greater flexibility in vertical tolerance and positioning in the wellbore
Real-time barrier and in-situ reservoir status
Reservoir and integrity monitoring via pressures and temperatures from caprock to cement
No need for periodic integrity tests — reducing cost, risk, and deferred production
Less need to compensate for insecurity with costly drilling programs
Compatibility with Halliburton ROC™ downhole gauges and cable
BEHIND CASING RESERVOIR MONITORING
Operators want maximum recovery, control and safety for the life of their reservoirs, all while under pressure to reduce costs. Methods to monitor reservoir performance without shutting in the well, and the drive to optimize reservoir performance is more critical than ever before.
B-ANNULUS PRESSURE/TEMPERATURE MONITORING
The LinX® monitoring system is a step change in well integrity monitoring enabled by wireless through-casing power and communication. With the LinX system, sensors are continously communicating from behind the well barriers – right where they need to be – without compromising well integrity or changing the well design, and without major revisions to the drilling program.
