Slotted Liner Open Flow Area Calculator

The Slotted Liner Open Flow Area Calculator provides a means for identifying the percentage of open area on the outside diameter of a pipe.

The number of slots per foot of pipe is determined by calculating the number required to achieve the necessary percentage of open area on the pipe's outer surface. For assistance in determining your ideal slot pattern please contact us.

Variperm’s Slotted Liner Open Flow Area Calculator can help you determine open area based on your specifications.

Our sand control experts offer the course Sand Control for Heavy Oil Development, which is featured at select petroleum technology conferences around the world. The course reviews fundamental sand control design for heavy oil development with a focus on cold primary production and thermal application. It goes on to detail the mechanisms, applications, and challenges of the various sand control options in both vertical and horizontal applications. It mainly focuses on a practical project requiring the participants to apply what they have learned by selecting, designing and presenting the most appropriate sand control completion for several case study wells for both cold primary and thermal application. The course reviews several field failure examples and case studies to guide engineers to better understand the factors contributing to sand control failure and how they can operate their wells to minimize the failure potential.
