When unevern production causes excessive gas and/or water to migrate to the wellbore, operators rely on Halliburton's EquiFlow® inflow control devices (ICDs). Dynamic fluid technology effectively directs fluid flow across the whole reservoir, helping to reduce unwanted fluids, balance production through the interval, and stimulate low permeability sections evenly.
Plus, our autonomous inflow control devices (AICDs) contain no moving parts, electronics or connections to the surface, enabling you to extend production for the life of the reservoir.
spotlight on new technology
Recognized by OTC in 2012 for addressing the problem of restricting unwanted water or gas production through innovative and efficient ICD designs.
EquiFlow® inflow control devices offer simple and reliable solutions, combining inflow balancing with advanced completions tailored to meet your reservoir challenges. These solutions can be incorporated with conventional screens or debris filters. Simulation software is used to model, design and optimize EquiFlow ICD completions. The portfolio includes:
EquiFlow® ICDs with Sliding Sleeves
Selectively intervene with a mechanical shifting tool to shut-off and re-open ICDs along the length of the producing interval.
EquiFlow® washpipe-free ICD completions help reduce operational time and costs, and upon dissolution of the dissolvable plugs, delay gas and water breakthrough.
