Closing Panel- Inflow Control Devices: Performance Experiences in Latin America

ICD’s have been installed to balance fluid flow along horizontal sections of wells with the aim of increasing oil production rates, delaying the effects of water cusping and thus increasing the recovery factors. Petroamazonas, AGIP and Repsol from Ecuador and Pacific Rubiales (Colombia) will present a status of experiences, performance and future trends in their respective oil fields. Cases from consolidated and non-consolidated reservoirs covering a range of fluid viscosities will be discussed. This informative panel will be followed by a Q/A session giving the Conference participants the opportunity to learn from real challenges.
