IOR-06 THE USE OF DISTRIBUTED WELL TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS IN WATERFLOOD MANAGEMENT Abstract 1 Fibre optic sensor technology is being increasingly used by the oil industry. Optical fibres can be permanently installed in a well providing distributed real time temperature data at a one-metre resolution. This paper investigates the link between the temperature distribution in the well and the reservoir performance. A range of fine grid reservoir simulations have been examined to study the temperature changes in a production well over the course of field history aiming to assess the potential value of accurate distributed well temperature data for management of
