Lukoil orders Tendeka control equipment for Caspian Sea wells

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK – Lukoil-Nizhnevolzhskneft has contracted Tendeka to supply autonomous inflow control devices (AICDs) for deployment in horizontal wells at the Yuri Korchagin oil field in the North Caspian Sea.

ICDs create a more even production profile along the length of a horizontal wellbore to avoid early water or gas breakthrough caused by reservoir heterogeneity, fractures, or frictional pressure losses.

Tendeka says its AICDs combine this functionality with a self-regulating adjustable design that provides greater production choking where gas and water breakthrough occurs. This prevents the well from being flooded with unwanted fluids and results in higher greater recovery, lower water cuts, and less gas production.
