Andres Chavarria – “Geophysical Distributed Sensing within Instrumented Assets”

Please join us for the PCS-SEG monthly luncheon on Thursday, January 14th. This will be a virtual meeting held using the Zoom meeting platform.

The meeting will feature Andres Chavarria, Oilfield Services Technical Director at OptaSense. The title of his talk is “Geophysical Distributed Sensing within Instrumented Assets”.

Abstract
Reservoir monitoring with distributed acoustic sensing has proven an effective cost saving tool for various assets in a wide range of basins. Using fiber optic that often times is deployed for production monitoring purposes provides geoscientists with low cost tools to conduct measurements like seismic, microseismic and strain.

Here we show recent examples of DAS seismic projects where fiber for monitoring different assets was used to monitor reservoir changes. We focus on time lapse applications including steam and water injection, CO2 storage as well as passive microseismic and earthquake monitoring.

Bio
Andres Chavarria is OptaSense’s  Oilfield Services Technical Director. His current focus is the use of distributed sensing fiber optic data for engineering and geoscience applications.  

He has a background on borehole seismology (MS and VSP) and was previously the Geophysical Processing Manager at OptaSense, SR2020 and Paulsson. He has conducted work in other areas of geophysics including geothermal, mining and groundwater. He holds an Engineering Degree on Geophysics from the National University of Mexico and a PhD Degree on Geophysics from Duke University.
