Simple, robust, effective

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.

A complete portfolio  

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® Autonomous ICDs
    Innovative dynamic fluid diode technology distinguishes the types of fluids flowing through the AICD. No moving parts, they function as passive ICDs during oil production, while restricting the production of water and gas upon breakthrough to minimize water and gas cuts dramatically. 
  • EquiFlow® Adjustable Nozzle ICDs 
    Regulate flow rate by adding pressure drop through a series of nozzles, adjusted for flow rate vs pressure differential for each ICD. This adjustability provides a customized restriction profile and allows for adjustments in the workshop or at the rig site. 
  • EquiFlow® Washpipe-free Systems 
    A positive seal and plug solution fitted to each AICD/ICD flow port deliver hydrocarbons and provide injection. Enable pressure integrity, circulation and stimulation without the requirement of an inner string while running in hole, helping to reduce rig time.
  • EquiFlow® ICD with Dissolvable Plug
    Dissolvable rods can be used to plug the flow paths in the ICD housing, which disappear after the completion is installed and fluid displacement is complete – thus, creating a washpipe-free ICD completion.

Novel Washpipe-Free ICD Completion with Dissolvable Material

EquiFlow® washpipe-free ICD completions help reduce operational time and costs, and upon dissolution of the dissolvable plugs, delay gas and water breakthrough.
