Abstract

The Inflow Control Device has four sets of baffels or flow channels of varying length. Depending on reservoir conditions one of the flow baffles will be selected for the flow path. The other three baffels are in communication with the flow path but are 'blind.' The idea would be to fill the unused volume with a wax, paste, gel, or something that would slowly release a chemical to the flow stream. The chemical could be a corrosion inhibitor, scale inhibitor, something to control parrifin, or any combination.
