Ensure effective flow distribution in fractured or highly heterogeneous reservoirs
Distribution of injected fluids is critical for achieving effective oil sweep or chemical treatment. The presence of highly permeable zones or fractures prevents effective fluid distribution leading to lower recovery factors and premature water breakthrough in production wells.
Designed to limit the liquid rate from a highly fractured section in the reservoir. A high water rate will compress the disc to fuse and choke the flow. The valve remains dynamically reactive and will re-open if the distributed flow can be achieved.
