1. A hydrocarbon fluid filtering apparatus for connection to production tubing in a wellbore at a subterranean location, the apparatus comprising:
a tubular member configured to connect to the production tubing;
a longitudinally extending housing mounted outside the tubular member, the member being of a size to form an annular space between the tubular member and the housing and of a size to fit in the wellbore;
walls forming a chamber on one end of the housing, wherein the chamber is in fluid communication with the interior of the housing and the interior of the tubular member;
packing on the exterior of the housing; and
a filter in the annular space between the tubular member and the housing, whereby hydrocarbon fluids flowing axially along the wellbore through the annular space flow through the filter.
