For many years we have actively supported technology developers and operators with the design and application of expandable screen’s technology. IESL’s new publication is focused on the use of Inflow Control Functions ICF of the various type of expandable screens available in the market. Our work explores alternative, field proven and effective engineering to provide ICF based on the radial stresses applied to the sand face by the expansion of the screen. The proposed methodology takes advantage of the changes in petro-physical properties of the near wellbore in order to ensure that inflow is tailored to the particular requirements of the well completion and reservoir management strategy.
