Silixa partners with WellDog for fiber optic installations

Silixa, which provides distributed acoustic and temperature monitoring technology, has entered into a strategic partnership with WellDog, an energy-focused technical services company, for fiber optic installation work in North America and Australia. The agreement will focus on covering new installations in the unconventional sector.

Mick Longton, Silixa’s commercial director, said, “This collaborative agreement will allow fiber services to be combined with the proven services supplied by WellDog, such as continuous monitoring of bottomhole pressure and temperatures, and completion optimization. The complementary technologies will expand the options available to our clients to improve reservoir management.”

Silixa’s distributed sensing solutions apply real-time intelligent distributed acoustic sensing (iDAS) and distributed temperature sensing (ULTIMA DTS) to measure and monitor conditions within wellbores and other assets. WellDog creates technical solutions for key resource evaluation and production challenges.
