Abstract
The interest in using optical sensors as replacements for typical electrical sensors in the oil and gas industry has increased as the potential benefits and reliability of such technologies become more established. Presented here are the results from initial tests using optical temperature sensors to monitor the effectiveness of subsea tree insulation to retain heat within the flow-loops of a Christmas Tree to prevent hydrate formation during system cool-down. Initial tests were carried out to compare the optical fibre sensor performance with traditional electrical thermocouples. Suggestions for further development and future tests are also presented and discussed.
