MeshFlux integrates the top performing sand screens system, MeshRite™, with viscosity independent nozzle-based flow control. Strategically positioned nozzles prevent or delay water coning, choke back any water reaching the wellbore, clean up the toe area, and equalize production across a long lateral.Download Brochure » Contact Us »
Nozzle styles and sizes are configured at the wellsite based on reservoir data obtained during well logging. This allows flexibility in liner design tailored to the formation zones along a lateral.
Drilling long laterals is expensive and adds complexity to completion decisions. Formation characteristics vary which makes optimizing production or injection at every lateral section difficult. Flow in the lateral begins to resemble the pressure profile of a pipeline. The addition of pumping systems to increase draw down can promote water coning, sand influx, and erosion which increase operating costs and shorten well life.
MeshFlux maximizes well productivity by equalizing the drawdown and influx from toe-to-heel of the well.
Nozzles are viscosity independent as shown in the chart below and thus enhance oil production and delay water influx into the wellbore.
Why Is Understanding Sand Retention And Flow Behavior At The Sand-Screen Interface Important?
SecureFlow nozzles are used for high temperature applications such as thermal heavy oil production or steam injection
StandardFlow nozzles direct flow vertically through the nozzle and are used for conventional oil and low flow velocity applications
Nozzle sections can be integrated with MeshRite screen and/or blank joints.
Tri-D Weave can also be substituted for MeshRite in highly corrosive conditions. MeshRite has a worldwide track record for exceptional open flow area, plugging resistance, and well productivity. The chart below shows a sand pack permeability comparisons for a variety of sand control technologies.
