Monitoring geologic carbon sequestration sites is needed to protect groundwater quality


By Jim McMahon

Distributed Strain Sensing Rayleigh Frequency Shift (DSS-RFS) is the latest generation of fibre optic sensing systems employed to monitor deep well conditions, and it is a transformative technology for augmenting operational performance in geologic sequestration for carbon capture storage.

DSS-RFS technology permits tens-of-thousands of points down a fibre that is attached to a tubing string or casing string to be measured very quickly every 20 centimetres along the entire fibre length deployed in or along the wellbore.
