FloSure AICD Screens & Subs
Autonomous Inflow Control Devices (AICDs) are the next generation of inflow control technology which not only provides a more uniform inflow profile and enhanced production but they do this autonomously. Our FloSure Autonomous Inflow Control Device (AICD) is a proven solution for increasing oil production over the life of the field. It has been deployed successfully in light and heavy oil wells to overcome water or gas breakthrough and ensure uniform production longevity. The device preferentially chokes unwanted produced fluids whilst promoting production of oil from the entire length of the well.
Tendeka’s FloSure AICDs are fully interchangeable, field adjustable and engineering for a wide range of applications. Deployed as part of the lower completion using zonal isolation packers to divide the reservoir into compartments, the AICD can be integrated with sand control screens for soft formations. Tendeka offers the following FloSure AICD sand screen options:
- FloSure Elite is the lighter version of the product line with a lighter metal mesh which has been specifically engineered to reduce costs whilst maintaining performance and strength. It is rated for most field applications.
- FloSure Ultra offers the ultimate in sand retention and fines tolerance. The premium design features a five-layer metal mesh filtration system for support, drainage, filtration, convergence and protection. The innovative pressure-fit assembly ensures the premium mesh layers achieve the highest burst and collapse rating, and results in a mechanically robust screen. This can be mechanically handled at surface and deployed through milled windows and tight doglegs downhole.
- Tendeka’s FloSure Direct wire wrapped screens range offers both conventional slip-on and wrap-on pipe variations. Jackets are available in standard service 316LSS or CRA alloy as required. Wire profiles are available with a heavy-duty design for maximum erosion resistance. Wrapped screens are shrink fitted to the perforated base pipe via the end-rings, providing maximum strength to withstand high shear, compaction and torque loads.
- FloSure Compact slip-on sand screen provides sand control whilst allowing flexibility to re-dress on site.
FloSure Shrouded Subs
Tendeka’s Autonomous Inflow Control Device can also be integrated within short subs for harder formations. In conventional production wells, fluids tend to cone at the heel of the well. This can lead to early water or gas break, resulting in lost recovery, lost revenues and reduced well life. Evening out the inflow profile results in better coning control, thereby delaying the water or gas breakthrough.
FloSure AICD subs can be used along with the Tendeka range of mechanical or swellable packers and appropriate inflow profile as per client requirements.
