Luna Partners to develop new oil and gas production monitoring service

OptaSense products provide a clearer tank image with fiber optics

ROANOKE, Virginia, October 6, 2021– (BUSINESS WIRE) – Luna Innovations (NASDAQ: LUNA), a global leader in advanced optical technology, today announced new production profiling capability based on Luna’s OptaSense fiber optic sensing products. The new capability is the result of the joint development and licensing of ConocoPhillips patented transient analysis technology in combination with Luna’s highly sensitive distributed temperature measurements.

The solution increases the accuracy of determining individual cluster oil production in unconventional wells and can be deployed with permanent or temporary deployment options. This helps identify features in production wells that are not easily detected by other temperature or acoustic sensing tools alone. Continuous tool refinement and increased field deployment give an even clearer picture of production conditions in various types of tanks.

“We are proud of our innovative and industry-enhancing relationship with ConocoPhillips to further expand the applications of fiber optic technology in the oil and gas industry around the world,” said Scott Graeff, President and Chief Executive Officer. from the direction of Luna. “This collaboration provides us with a key reservoir profiling solution that solidifies Luna’s position as a leader in fiber-based production monitoring services in the oil and gas market.

Luna’s OptaSense products offer a variety of technologies that provide analysis and response products for production completion and optimization. Collaborations with industrial partners such as ConocoPhillips continue to develop not only the science but, more importantly, the commercialization of tools used to assess production in the most complex reservoirs.
