Flow assurance

The authors challenge the traditional planning and execution of interventions, both from an operational and commercial standpoint, and examine where room exists for significant improvement in the industry
To avoid costly interventions like sidetracking or wellbore abandonment, a check-valve system was installed near the sandface within three injector wells which prevented the mobilization of fines from the reservoir into the wellbore by stopping backflow.
Smart completions using autonomous outflow control devices significantly helped in improving reservoir management and increasing oil and gas field productivity by enhancing the injection wells' performance.
