Abstract
Offshore Oil and Gas R&D has been committed to improved reservoir performance through production monitoring. Technology improvements in these areas offer the greatest potential returns through increased knowledge of the reservoir, and the improvements in real-time production control that the technology and knowledge base can provide. One area of technology that supports this development is the growing application of fiber optic sensors for reservoir and production monitoring. These sensors cannot function in isolation, and need support in the form of fiber optic connection systems for x-tree penetrations. ODI have been developing products for fiber optic tree penetrations and down-hole wet connections for the last 4 years, working with Intelligent Wells Group at BP America Production Company in Houston. This paper discusses the application and reliability of fiber optic connectors, and reviews the development of the ODI I-CONN connection system and its application for vertical and horizontal x-trees, work-over systems and running tools, and down-hole systems.
