The purpose of this paper is to compare the permanent monitoring systems based on optical fiber systems and intelligent chemical tracers. This analysis was carried out based on an operational assessment of similar systems for permanent monitoring of horizontal wells in the Yuri Korchagin oilfield for 3 years in various regimes of operation.
The paper discusses the main advantages and limitations of these systems and provides their comparison to conventional production logging tools (PLTs).
