Sensa, a UK-based developer of fiber optic technology systems for the energy industry, announced the opening of its Houston office as part of its U.S. deployment of a proven oilfield management tool. Sensa is headquartered in Andover in the UK and has offices in Venezuela, Australia, Oman and Bakersfield, Calif. Included among Sensa's customers are BP, Texaco, Shell and BHP.

Based on fiber optic sensing technology, Sensa's systems combine fiber optic sensors with advanced telecommunications, enabling real-time well monitoring and analytical tools that help oilfield operators detect problems in advance for proactive resolution. The continuous availability of critical reservoir information made accessible by Sensa's systems such as fluid flow and water and gas breakthrough, helps drilling companies make better decisions about how to economically produce reserves in a way that protects the environment.

Sensa recently supplied BP and Texaco asset teams in the Gulf of Mexico with Sensa Insight, a patented method for downhole monitoring using distributed fiber optic sensors. As a result, information generated from the system has helped both companies improve production from their gas platforms.
