Variperm’s cutting edge flow paths are built to enhance your flow control device by restricting flow to force a uniform production rate throughout the length of your well. These flow paths help operators manage well performance regardless of pressure and temperature fluctuations in the reservoir and can be used in all types of applications, including but not limited to SAGD, CSS, steamflooding and waterflooding. 


Our technical team continues to develop flow paths for all types of fluids, such as steam, NCG, solvent, water, etc. Contact Us to learn more.
