Autonomous Inflow Control Device Technology (AICD)

Autonomous Inflow Control Device is an advanced solution for increasing oil production over the life of the field. This next generation of inflow control technology not only provides a more uniform inflow profile and enhanced production, but is achieved autonomously. The device preferentially chokes unwanted produced fluids whilst promoting production of oil from the entire length of the well. A simple, reliable and cost-effective solution to the downfalls of passive inflow control.

• Controls BOTH gas and water in oil wells 

• Levitator design offers superior performance to passive and tortuous path inflow control devices 

• Readily configurable (nozzle diameter) 

• Self-cleaning high flow area design

• No diameter increase over conventional ICD screens 

• No protrusion into base pipe for intelligent well completions and intervention 

• The levitation disc allows for ream or washdown and spotting of breaker fluids 

• Press fit tungsten carbide inserts for erosion strength
