Halliburton and TechnipFMC have introduced Odassea, the first distributed acoustic sensing solution technology into their subsea well operations, according to a press release.

The new technology platform enables operators to execute intervention-less seismic imaging and reservoir diagnostics to reduce the total cost of ownership while improving reservoir knowledge. It is an integration of hardware and digital systems to strengthen digital capabilities in subsea reservoir monitoring and production optimization. 

Halliburton will be in charge of providing the fiber optic sensing technology, completions, and analysis for reservoir diagnostics. Meanwhile, TechnipFMC will provide the optical connectivity from the topside to the completions. Through this merger of technical skills, operators can accelerate full-field subsea fiber optic sensing, design, and execution.

Trey Clark, vice president of Halliburton Wireline and Perforating, said, “We are excited to introduce a new technology platform which allows our customers to monitor reservoir performance in real-time. By collaborating with TechnipFMC, we can harness our combined subsurface and subsea expertise to deliver differentiated products to the marketplace that provide value for our customers.”

Halliburton and TechnipFMC are delivering solutions with this technology to multiple subsea projects at all stages from conceptual design to execution and installation.
