Intelligent completions incorporate permanent downhole sensors and surface-controlled downhole flow control valves, enabling you to monitor, evaluate, and actively manage production (or injection) in real time without any well interventions. Data are transmitted to surface for local or remote monitoring.
Initially used in subsea wells, where intervention is expensive and high-risk, intelligent completions have since proven their value in managing production from multilateral wells, horizontal wells with multiple zones, wells in heterogeneous reservoirs, and mature reservoirs.
The IntelliZone Compact modular multizonal management system is the first fully integrated intelligent flow control system for multizone wells. It provides an efficient, reliable, and cost-effective way to control wells on land and offshore.
Flow control valves are used in multizone intelligent completions, commingled-flow completions, auto (natural) gas-lift wells, and well environments with scale deposition, severe erosion, or high temperature conditions.
Multiport packers prevent fluid loss in multizone wells and thereby enhance safety, protect against formation damage, reduce the need for costly workovers, and protect reservoir integrity and productivity.
WellWatcher permanent monitoring systems integrate the most advanced permanent downhole gauges and sensors with surface acquisition units and data communication to allow remote monitoring of wells and reservoirs in real time.
Essential to multitrip intelligent completion installations, these connectors enable retrieval of the upper completion without disturbing the lower completion and its zonal isolation packers, flow control valves (FCVs), chemical injection mandrels, isolation valves, and monitoring sensors.
