OILMOLES: Sensors for Oil Reservoir Digging


In this project, a wireless underground sensor network testbed will be developed for oil reservoir monitoring. The research will lead to develop active smart proppants (FracBots) that Saudi Aramco would like to use to map hydraulic fractures that are critical for stimulating wells in unconventional and tight reservoirs.
