Inflow Control - Getting more out of oil!

About AICV

The variable flow area

Enables even more uniform inflow and enhanced phase filtering. The phase filtering is designed such that the unwanted phase is choked and the oil is favoured. Different design of the AICV® dtechnology is necessary for different application.

InflowControl has established AICV® concept for the following cases:


  • - Oil reservoirs with gas cap. The gas is stopped
  • - Oil reservoirs with water drive. The water is stopped at a given draw down in order to avoid high WC from ‘highwqay’ zones
  • - Heavy oil with water drive. The water is stopped.
  • - Extra heavy oil (bitumen). The steam is stopped.
