ABOUT InflowControl


SECTOR: Oil & Gas

SUB SECTOR: Upstream     

SPECIALITY: Upstream

More oil; less water; less gas; and increased oil recovery.

– Better for the Economics and Better for the Environment.

– This is what AICV® technology achieves.

InflowControl are the inventors of the world’s most effective autonomous inflow control technology for upstream oil and gas wells – the AICV® (Autonomous Inflow Control Valve).

  • AICV® promotes oil production and can stop gas and water when breakthrough occurs (or solve problems for existing wells by retrofitting the completion).
  • AICV® closes autonomously and completely shut-off the unwanted fluid production at breakthroughs locally in the well. At the same time oil production will continue from the other inflow zones along the well, ensuring optimum oil production and recovery.
  • AICV® is completely self-regulating, and does not require any form of control, electronics, or connection to the surface. This provides operators with significantly more efficient production and increased recovery.
  • AICV® technology enables opportunities to drill longer wells and achieve maximum reservoir contact and importantly achieve ‘production conformance’ within each well.

 

The technology makes it possible to maximize well production far more efficiently than ever before. The AICV® eliminates the gas and water breakthrough problems and supports ‘Making Better Wells’.

Leaders in Autonomous Inflow Control Technology:  InflowControl has industry experts which have leading experience in developing Autonomous Inflow Control Technology.  InflowControl was founded by Dr. Vidar Mathiesen (CEO), Haavard Aakre (CTO) and Bjørnar Werswick (COO) who invented the AICV®.  Vidar and Haavard were the inventors of the RCP-AICD in 2006 which is owned by Equinor and licensed out to multiple vendors for use.

AICV® (Autonomous Inflow Control Valve)

AICV® technology eliminates the gas and water breakthrough problems and supports 'Making Better Wells' by shutting off or choking high GOR and WC zones autonomously yet remains open for oil zones.

68% Water Cut Reduction: 6 AICV® Wells Within a Mature Heavy Oil Field

A major oilfield in the Middle East which has been on production for several years has significant water control issues. The reservoir is a sandstone, mature waterflood play. Newly drilled wells typically started their production life with 60-80% water cut (WC) and quickly this number increased to 80-90% WC within the first 6-8 months of coming on line. The operator had issues managing the high water production and due to this, significant oil remained by-passed and the oil production per well was greatly suppressed and total oil recovery reduced.

80% Gas Reduction – 20 Well Application with Light Oil in a Brownfield

A major oilfield in the Middle East that has a major gas cap and has been on production since the 1960’s has gas communication through its fracture network.  The operator had aggressive gas breakthrough throughout the field and many of the wells also suffered from a large increase in water production.

85% Gas Shut-off in Mature Carbonate Reservoir with Ultra Light Oil

A major carbonate oilfield in the Middle East had significant gas communication through its fracture network. The operator had significant gas breakthrough and the high GOR (gas oil ratio) made the well un-producible. The operator had to shut-in the well, leaving significant oil reserves and production stranded.
