Paper Abstract

The international oilfield service industry has used a large variety of sensing devices for the exploration of oil and gas in the last 70 years. These include sensors that range in the measurement of nuclear information, resistivity, acoustic, seismic, E & M fields including most recently optical sensors. The environments are very demanding in temperature, pressure, and vibration which, in general, describes the difficulty in converting current laboratory or commercial sensors for the oilfield industry. Applications where optical sensors have been successfully used and the potential future of fiber optic sensors for this industry will be reviewed.
