WellDog has announced that it has partnered with Silixa, a fibre optic sensing technology company. The partnership will focus on delivering distributed temperature and distributed acoustic sensing products and services, as well as increasing operator visibility to the complex geochemical and geophysical downhole environment.
“This collaboration with WellDog will accelerate and further extend the use of Silixa’s distributed fibre optic sensors. Together with WellDog’s existing downhole sensors, we will be able to offer a wider range of cost-effective and reliable monitoring services to clients,” said Mahmoud Farhadiroushan, Silixa’s CEO.
WellDog and Silixa plan to commercialise a series of new products and services over the next few quarters.
“Silixa’s advanced fibre optic sensing technology bridges our two primary technology platforms, optical-based chemical sensing and electronic-based temperature and pressure sensing” said John Pope, Ph.D., President and CEO of WellDog. “The combination of these technologies, together with WellDog’s unconventional business focus, will offer oil and gas operators an unprecedented comprehensive view into the subsurface and bring additional economic and sustainability benefits to the industry.”
