Exploring annular phase separation phenomena to optimize AICD completion design, to control unwanted effluents
AICDs are the next generation of inflow control technology that autonomously provides a more uniform inflow profile and enhanced production. The FloSure AICD increases oil output over field life and has been deployed successfully in light and heavy oil wells to overcome water or gas breakthrough.
Existing but previously unused data obtained during the drilling process can now be used to enhance completion design. The author outlines the available data and discusses how it can be incorporated into the completion design process and ultimately provide economic benefits to an operator.
