High-tech cabling ensures safety,
productivity and durability in
The global demand for oil and gas has caused rapid expansion and investment to replace an infrastructure that has not changed significantly over the last few decades. The industry as a whole recognizes the need for improved monitoring systems. Fiber optic installation is a key component of the expansion, allowing companies to leverage the advantages offered by fiber while improving operational performance and accuracy.
The oil and gas industry requires very specific cabling and connectivity requirements to ensure safety, productivity and durability in harsh environments. Downhole equipment must be reliable and able to withstand heat, pressure, moisture, corrosion and vibration.
Fiber optics for oil and gas serve as links for data, control and for sensing of various attributes. Since fiber optics offer large bandwidth in a compact cable, size, weight and installation time are reduced. With sensor applications, fiber optic solutions provide a wide range of data about environmental conditions such as temperature, oil reserve levels and equipment performance or status.
As drilling moves further offshore, traditional copper wire will not handle the distance due to limitations in bandwidth. It will become imperative to employ fiber optic technologies that allow increased and improved data generation and analysis. AFL is already assisting customers deploying acoustic and distributed temperature monitoring.
