Fiber optic components and cables for the Oil & Gas industry

Our Fiber in Metal Tubes elevate ropeway systems by integrating crucial communication and sensing capabilities, transforming them into dual-purpose infrastructures that enhance both operational efficiency and safety.

FIMT for Oil & Gas

In the dynamic field of Oil & Gas, our specialized Fiber in Metal Tubes (FIMTs) are instrumental in advancing fiber optic solutions for well completions and interventions. These FIMTs provide a durable and reliable medium for high-tech fiber optic sensing, essential for real-time monitoring and data acquisition in complex operations like coiled tubing and slickline activities. The integration of fiber optics in well interventions and completions significantly boosts the precision and efficiency of these processes, making them safer and more effective. Furthermore, our fiber optic components are invaluable in pipeline monitoring, offering an advanced solution for early leak detection and prevention. This capability is critical for maintaining pipeline integrity, ensuring environmental safety, and reducing operational risks. Our products cater to the increasing demand for innovative fiber optic applications in Oil & Gas, including downhole communication, hydraulic fracturing monitoring, and temperature sensing, thereby solidifying their role as a key component in the industry’s technological advancement.

Frequently asked questions

Well Intervention involves various techniques aimed at managing and enhancing well performance. Common methods include Slickline, Coiled Tubing, and Hydraulic Workover. These techniques are used for tasks like scale removal, artificial lift, well stimulations, and addressing mechanical failures. The goal is to maximize production efficiency and extend the life of the well.

 

Slickline is a thin cable used for deploying tools and equipment down into an oil or gas well for various tasks, including well diagnostics, plugging, pressure and temperature measurement, and sampling. It’s essential for routine maintenance and data gathering to ensure efficient well operations.

Coiled Tubing (CT) is a continuous length of steel or composite tubing used for interventions in oil and gas wells. Unlike Slickline, which is non-rigid, Coiled Tubing can pump fluids into the well and is capable of rotary drilling actions. CT is used for more complex operations such as drilling, fracturing, and scale removal due to its ability to apply hydraulic power.

FIMTs are designed with materials specifically chosen for their corrosion resistance to environments containing hydrogen sulfide. The metal tubes, often made from stainless steel or specially alloyed materials, provide excellent protection for the optical fibers against the harsh chemical interactions found in sour environments.

For applications in sour environments, FIMTs typically utilize corrosion-resistant alloys such as stainless steel 316L, Alloy 825, or Alloy 625. These materials are known for their high resistance to a wide range of corrosive conditions, including those found in sour oil and gas fields.

Yes, we offer customization options for FIMTs to match the specific requirements of operations in sour environments. This includes selecting the most appropriate corrosion-resistant materials and designing the FIMTs to meet the particular challenges of each application.
