SPE WA Technical Luncheon – Autonomous Inflow Control Devices (AICD) – Prediction Modelling
November 9, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm$35.00 – $65.00
Optimising oil production from long horizontal wells to obtain maximum reservoir contact and effective reservoir sweep management has been a challenging task. Uneven production and early water or gas breakthrough are the main challenges to achieve the target production. For many years, inflow control devices (ICDs) which restrict flow by creating additional pressure have been used to mitigate this problem. They are, however passive in nature and once water or gas breakthrough, the chocking effect cannot be adjusted without intervention.
The autonomous inflow control device (AICD) is an active inflow control device with a self-adjustable design to self-regulate and provide greater chocking when gas and water breaks through. This prevents the well from being flooded when unwanted fluid breakthrough therefore providing the advantage of being able to even out the inflow into well and in addition choke compartments producing unwanted fluids leading to greater recovery, lower water cuts and gas production.
Prediction modelling used to select a well candidate process between Passive and Autonomous inflow control device using systematic approach. Analysis on actual results comparing modelling studies, field application and long term performance.
