Tri-DPort combines the advantages of PremiumPort™, a dynamically configurable nozzle based downhole inflow and injection control tool, with Tri-DPro™ sand control that is more effective and more economical than conventional premium screens for unconsolidated formations with non-uniform sands.Download Brochure » Contact Us »
Following deployment, the multi-position valve within PremiumPort can be shifted to close or open nozzles as required, which gives operators the flexibility to change the pressure profile along a lateral repeatedly over the life of the well. Multiple PremiumPort units can be installed with either screen or blank joints between them. Being able to tailor flow control aids in removing formation damage from drilling and completion fluids, delaying water influx over time, and optimizing toe-to-heel inflow. Screen sections are made with Tri-D Weave without welding the media thus avoiding any risk of burn through, pin holes or faulty welds. This next generation premium screen has high open flow area plus high strength and resilience against load forces in horizontal wells.Watch Video
Well completion decisions must deliver optimum productivity and long well life to recover reserves. Operators are recognizing that all the intervals along laterals do not contribute production equally. They need effective ways to better manage the pressure profile from toe-to-heel of the well in order to clean up drilling fluids and to delay water influx as the well ages. Also, sand entering the wellbore over time is another operational concern, as this can reduce well productivity, damage surface facilities, or worse, cause expensive remediation and catastrophic well failure.
Tri-DPort combines the most flexible flow control technology in the market with the top performing filter media for oil and gas reservoirs. Nozzles are viscosity independent which leads to delayed water influx.

Tri-DPro screen integrated into Tri-DPort stops harmful sand from entering the wellbore. Fluid flows through the filter media, along grooves in the base pipe to the nozzles. Unlike channel or tube-based inflow control devices (ICDs), nozzles are viscosity independent flow control devices that inhibit water influx.
The chart below shows the measured pressure drop for various fluid viscosities passing through a 4.00 mm nozzle.
A large flow area between the screen media and the base pipe prevents erosion and any undesirable pressure losses.
Tri-DPort is best suited for unconsolidated, non-uniform sands and reservoirs with corrosive conditions. The nozzles are configured for inflow or injection control at the wellsite prior to deployment.
After deploying Tri-DPort, the multi-position valve can be shifted to expose ports which can be plugged, left as open ports, or fitted with nozzles for injection or inflow flow control. The valve can be reliably re-positioned down hole to select ports in any order, and as many times are required using the Harrier shifting tool on coil tubing. Ports/nozzles are opened or closed to change the pressure profile along the lateral, shut off intervals, or stimulate the well.
A number of factors influence proper completion design for injection, inflow and sand control across a lateral. Absolute’s Technical Application Managers are available to assist you in achieving optimal well performance through:
