Inflow and Injection Control Devices (ICDs)
Balanced flow across the entire completion interval
Improve hydrocarbon recovery and sweep efficiency by balancing flow across intervals with permeability variations.
Inflow control device planning software
ICD Advisor inflow control device planning software supports completion designs aimed at recovery optimization through the use of inflow control devices (ICDs). It is implemented as a plug-in for the Petrel E&P software platform and uses the ECLIPSE industry-reference reservoir simulator to predict the dynamic well response for a given ICD completion design.
Several workflows are available for using existing reservoir models and LWD logs in a fit-for-purpose approach to reservoir description around the wellbore. A customized set of output plots is available to efficiently evaluate multiple completion scenarios.
The software provides the following recommendations for achieving a balanced flow rate or drawdown:
