Inflow Control Devices Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of inflow control devices (ICDs), as well as sand screens and slotting services. ICDs are designed for use with sand screens, such as direct-wire-wrapped sand screens, wire-wrapped sand screens, premium-mesh sand screens and other specialty screens. These products are designed to work together to balance fluid flow rates, reduce the amount of gas and water that passes through and remove debris across the completion for the entire length of the well. Slotting services involve the use of slotted liners and casings, which can be employed as an alternative to a pre-holed liner, and are often used as a low-cost means of controlling sand production.
