    Rio de Janeiro – Fibre optic sensors capable of detecting variations in pressure and temperature at the bottom of an oil well. The equipment's ingenuousness prevents land units for problem correction from becoming paralized. The technology, owned by Rio de Janeiro-based company Gavea Sensors, can now be implemented in Colombia.

    "The first step is to develop a pilot project. That is necessary because each oil field has its peculiarities, and that calls for adapting the monitoring solutions," explains the Marketing and Business Development director at the company, Eduardo Costa.

    This business opportunity is one of the results of the Business Mission, planned by the National Organization of the Petroleum Industry (Onip) and by the Brazilian Micro and Small Business Support Service (Sebrae) in Rio de Janeiro, with support from the Brazilian Export and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brazil), which took place from September 17th to 19th. Twenty Brazilian businessmen participated in that first market prospecting in Bogota, the capital of Colombia.
