A company is selling a new well testing tool designed to be a cheaper, simpler way to do fiber optic sensing, and then it fades away. This paper shows results from use of a new technology that uses in-well-conveyed fiber-optic distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) for the detection of sand-ingress zones across the reservoir section throughout the production period in real time. With the availability of more-complex smart-well instrumentation, immediate evaluation of the well response is possible as changes in the reservoir or well occur.
