Case Studies

The AICV® can be designed for a variety of reservoir applications ranging from ultra-low oil viscosity for gas shut off and water choking, all the way up to heavy oil (both cold and thermal production).  That means your ICD strength can partly or fully choke off gas, steam and/or water. 

The AICV® can be adjusted to fit your reservoir strategy.
