MultiMesh screens

Multiphase Flow Performance

MultiMesh sand screens from TPM offer consistent performance and plugging resistance in formations producing heavy oil.

Compared to wire wrap screens, MultiMesh screens deliver superior results for these key reasons.

  • AICV. Producers are often using sophisticated Autonomous Inflow Control Valves (AICV) to manage reservoir uncertainty and water production in stand-alone completions. Wire wrap screens disperse water in the oil and negatively impact AICV performance. MultiMesh, however,  maintains stratified flow for optimal AICV operation. 
  • Heavy Oil. In heavy oil, the oil/water interface is very low in the annulus. This results in a high water phase velocity that lifts solids and plugs screens to a greater extent than in light oil.  MultiMesh screen is designed to handle higher suspended solids and extend the completion service life in heavy oil reservoirs.
