AICV® (autonomous inflow control valve) technology is the most effective reservoir management tool enabling E&P companies to stop (or reduce) un-wanted gas and water production

High Water Cut (WC) and high GOR (Gas Oil Ratio) can destroy economical oil recovery for many oil reservoirs. Challenging reservoir management occurs when unwanted fluid breakthrough of water and gas occurs due to uneven influx along the wellbore. While conventional ICD (inflow control devices) with sand screens can delay breakthrough of water and gas, they are incapable of stopping unwanted gas or water completely.

Fast ROI: The AICV® (autonomous inflow control valve) is proven to optimize oil production in both new and existing wells and can dramatically reduce water cut and/or GOR. The benefits of the AICVs is that they provide balanced inflow of oil along the wellbore by autonomously choking or closing the various zones (or compartments) that have high WC or GOR, yet the AICVs will remain open for oil rich zones, thus improving oil production and recovery.

This webinar will review how AICV® technology functionally works and then several case studies will be reviewed in detail showing where and how the AICVs have been applied to stop gas and/or water and improve oil recovery. Over 90 wells have been deployed worldwide within a variety of sandstone and carbonate reservoirs and can manage Ultralight oil reservoirs 0.25 cP up to Ultra heavy bitumen reservoirs.

If you have challenges with un-wanted water and gas, then this webinar will provide significant insight into the newest proven technology available. AICVs are documented to be the most effective autonomous reservoir management technology on the market but supporting E&P operators in producing More Oil, Less Gas, and Less Water
