    The oil extraction process is about 35% efficient for most reservoirs. In order to increase the yield newer approaches are required. The use of optical sensors in permanent reservoir monitoring and other aspects of upstream activities using fibre optic sensors will be presented. The lecture will look at how fibre sensors work and how they can be multiplexed together to form large monitoring networks. The pros and cons of fibre optic sensing will be presented.
