Overview

The WellConnect™ ‘High Pressure’ Concentric Instrument Wet-Mateable Electrical Connector is designed to provide continuous electrical connection between the Tubing Hanger and the X-Tree, providing long term electrical connection for DHPT applications.

The connector is designed to fit a non-orientated Tree and provide electrical connection in all feasible orientation arrangements. The system also uses a THRT Connection to allow checks prior to the X-Tree landing.
