Can downhole power and/or fiber optic sensors be installed in CFST completion?

Yes, a hydraulic control-line can be incorporated into the outer layer. Using available SCSSV’s and packer with integrated control-line options, it can be supplied. Similarly, fiber optic cable can be integrated. Existing technology allows for the cable to exit the tubing, bypass the accessory, and connect to the optic cable below again.

Power cable for ESP can be “wrapped” in the out layer, providing a sturdy and protected alternative to traditionally banding to the outside of the tubing.
