SPE-171537-MS: Distributed Temperature Sensing in CSG Development

Paper SPE-171537-MS: Reservoir Characterisation Using Distributed Temperature Sensing in CSG Development: Application in the Surat Basin, Queensland, Australia

By: J.P. Furniss, J. Schouten, W. Bottomley, QGC – A BG Group Business; H. Taylor, Tendeka Oil and Gas Services Ltd. 

This paper discusses the use of distributed temperature sensing (DTS) in QGC’s Surat Basin wells, and how this new technology has been used to improve reservoir characterisation through enhanced resolution of zonal productivity and flowing contributions. 

This paper was prepared for presentation at the SPE Asia Pacific Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition held in Adelaide, Australia, 14–16 October 2014.


The Ruisdael Observatory

Schouten Energy links business to research for the Ruisdael Observatory, wrt climate & atmospheric research.

The Ruisdael Observatory conducts atmospheric research. It combines a nationwide dense network of measuring points with high-resolution simulations and the necessary computing power in order to map out the changes in local weather, climate and air quality.

The Ruisdael Observatory is supported by NWO through the National Roadmap for Large-Scale Research Facilities. The Ruisdael Observatory is a partnership made up of a wide range of parties, which enables it to combine all of these individual specializations. The consortium comprises researchers from the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI), Utrecht University, the University of Groningen, VU Amsterdam, Wageningen University & Research, RIVM, TNO, ECN and TU Delft (coordinating university).

Ruisdael Observatory measures thermodynamic units such as temperature, wind and humidity as well as the chemical composition including greenhouse gases. These produce aerosols – dust particles – around which cloud droplets can form. The resulting clouds in turn influence radiation. Also soil humidity and temperature influences the weather. Ruisdael starts measuring from 1m under the ground up to an altitude of around 12km, the entire troposphere, as this is the layer of the atmosphere that determines our weather and our climate.

The goal of the Ruisdael Observatory is to produce combined model observations and a simulation of the atmosphere of the Netherlands at a resolution of 100×100 meters.

Schouten Energy is proud to be able to link business goals to atmospheric & climate research.

TU Delft Climate Institute

The Climate Institute brings expertise together from researchers working on climate and climate change at the Technical University (TU) of Delft.

Schouten Energy carries out atmospheric research for the Climate Institute, describing the theoretical mechanisms involved with aerosol-cloud interaction, ways of measuring aerosol-cloud interaction processes, and deriving their correlation with Köhler curves using observations from lidar & radar signals.

Stadslandbouw Melkfabriek Arnhem

De Melkfabriek is de nieuwe hotspot van Arnhem. Schouten Energy werkt mee aan een industrieel terrein dat ontwikkeld wordt tot levendig, circulair en cultureel knooppunt van Arnhem. Een plek waar je kunt wonen, werken en ontspannen. Een plek om je creativiteit te tonen, of je onderneming te vestigen, wij zijn op zoek naar allerlei initiatieven om De Melkfabriek een duurzame identiteit te geven.
