Oil wells are drilled through layers of rock to access the reservoir below. These artificially introduced holes must be stabilised with a wall structure composed of so-called casings. This prevents the borehole from collapsing and isolates it from any unwanted fluid or gas exchange with the environment. Peruse this great educational article on casings for … Continue reading Well casings – More than just walls
What is distributed sensing? Distributed sensing utilises optical fibre itself as the sensor, effectively creating thousands of sensor points along the fibre, all acquired continuously and instantaneously at the same time by sensing at the speed of light. Even though an optical signal is being processed, acoustic and temperature changes can be measured with fibre … Continue reading Turning light into insight – Distributed sensing

The event was a great opportunity to test people's reactions to our ideas. Our demo gave them a good understanding … Continue reading Sensalytx exhibiting at BP Showcase

After all, it seems as if our CEO, Graham Gaston, is working to make his former role as a DOS (Distributed Optical Sensing) specialist redundant. D/SRUPTION have published an interesting piece on exactly that issue. They discuss how … Continue reading Will AI kill specialist jobs?

Where's the time gone? The last few weeks just whizzed past us in the TechX Accelerator programme. Our CEO, Graham Gaston, took stock last week of what has happened so far and what is lying ahead. No rest for the wicked! https://youtu.be/u7YlceqJDxM Here's an official video update from The OGTC with comments from our fellow … Continue reading TechX – Halfway there already!
Our CEO, Graham Gaston, went to the prestigious Pitch@Palace 10.0 on Tour contest in Edinburgh on 2nd July. What a day it was! It started with a session full of advice on pitching. Not nerve-wracking at all so shortly before the actual pitch! We had plenty to discuss. Then some networking and lunch. We even met the … Continue reading Pitch@Palace in Edinburgh
