Title: WELL SCREEN DESIGN FOR ENHANCED HORIZONTAL FLOW FILTRATION CONTROL
Abstract:
Embodiments and methods relate to a subsurface, well screen apparatus having a rib wire connected to a wire wrap, where the wire wrap enhances a volume of fluid and/or gas flow for reducing pressure drop via the well screen and/or has an inverted orientation as compared with prior designs. Embodiments and methods may also utilize a wire wrap that has a generally triangular shaped and/or triangular shaped cross-sectional profile. Embodiments and methods may also reverse the orientation of the rib wire and wire wrap. The effect of the embodiments and methods is enhanced horizontal flow filtration control.
