The FloRight ICD is designed to promote proportional production from or injection into the entire length of a horizontal well.
In conventional production wells, fluids are preferentially produced at the heel of the well or at other locations with high permeability streaks. This can lead to early water or gas break, resulting in reduced oil recovery, lost revenue and reduced well life. Balancing the inflow profile results in better coning control, thereby delaying the water or gas breakthrough.
In carbonate reservoirs in particular, FloRight can be used to restrict water production from natural fractures. TAQA’s FloRight is designed to combat this issue by promoting uniform production or injection along the entire length of the well.
