Screens with flow control devices
An autonomous inflow control valve is an equipment that is able to cut off the production of undesirable fluid (water, gas) with keeping the oil flow rate. It also can be applied for natural gas production; in this case, liquid is blocked.
Delaying water and gas breakthrough; levelling out of the inflow profile (10-300 zones) at the beginning of production.
Reducing the risk of gas and water breakthrough; levelling out of the inflow profile (10-300 zones) at the beginning of production; increasing well productivity and lifetime compared to ICD.
Limited opportunities to levelling out of the inflow profile at the beginning of production; the possibility of complete avoidance of water and gas penetration; surface controllable; a limited amount of zones (1-5 zones); high cost and complexity of service.
Includes ICV and ICD benefits.
Advantages and features of the technology:
- Various types of Flow Control available: closable sleeves, ICD, AICD, ICV
- No limit to the amount of zones
- Applicable on both new and existing wells
- Types of screens: direct wrap, premium mesh
- Can be equipped with Chemical Tracers
