Abstract

A leak detection system for a wellbore. The leak detection system includes: (1) at least one sensor configured to be positioned outside of a casing of the wellbore; (2) an interrogation system for sending signals to, and receiving signals from, the at least one sensor; and (3) an optical lead cable disposed between the interrogation system and the at least one sensor. A method of detecting a fluid leak in a wellbore is also disclosed.
