More than 90% of gas production in a multi-layered formation
Cased and perforated vertical wells are drilled in this field to access more than 400 ft of net pay from several producing intervals, separated by shale. A commingled production strategy is used, where oil is recovered from 2 main formation units using artificial lift.
The AICV® is the only autonomous device that can shut-off and effectively manage gas and water without interventions. After a careful evaluation, the operator decided to retrofit an existing well with the AICV® technology. InflowControl worked closely with the operator to design and retrofit the well with nearly two dozen AICV® with premium screens using swellpackers for compartmentalization.
