Autonomous Valve Controls Excess Water, Gas Production To Increase Oil Recovery
Autonomous Inflow Control Valve technology demonstrates significant benefits within first year.
Intelligent Completion in Water-Injector Well Improves Field Development
The operator piloted a new well-completion design combining inflow-control valves (ICVs) in the shallow reservoir and inflow-control devices (ICDs) in the deeper reservoir, both deployed in a water-injector well for the first time in the company’s experience.
Integrated Cemented Inflow-Control-Device System Design
This paper discusses the first deployment of an ICD system combined with an OBC system for a workover operation in a mature producer well in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
A 5-Year Journey of Advanced Completions
With the objective of increasing its production to 4.0 million BOPD, the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) is developing its fields with optimum technology solutions.
Optimization of Upper Burgan Reservoir Multilateral Well With Inflow-Control Device
This paper discusses the first multilateral well with a Level-4 junction combined with an inflow-control device (ICD) planned, designed, and drilled in the Upper Burgan reservoir of Raudhatain field, north Kuwait.
The Role of Autonomous Flow Control in SAGD Well Design
Work conducted in the Surmont field of Alberta, Canada, provided an excellent starting point to optimize flow-control improvements to the SAGD process.
Simulation of Flow-Control Devices With Feedback Control for Thermal Operations
Factors such as hydraulic gradients in the horizontal completion, geologic and fluid variations in the reservoir, and well-placement issues can produce very poor steam conformance in steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD).
