Product Sheet Control Line Wet Mate (CLWM) Connector
For fiber-optic WellWatcher systems.
As part of a WellWatcher permanent downhole monitoring system, the self-orienting control line wet mate (CLWM) connector links the control lines of the upper and lower dual-stage completions. After the control lines are linked, one continuous optical fiber is pumped into position to analyze reservoir performance using distributed temperature sensing (DTS) measurements. No splices are required, simplifying operations and saving time.
The CLWM connector eliminates the need for a more complicated downhole optical connector and improves the consistency of your multistage completions that use DTS measurements along the sandface.
The CLWM connector can be installed to replace degraded or damaged fiber or to accommodate newer optical interrogation technology—without costly, time-consuming workovers or production loss.
The connector design incorporates a protective sleeve that blocks wellbore debris to keep a consistently reliable flow passage for fiber-optic deployment.
