Sand Control

The course discusses concepts related to the selection of sand control method and treatment design; conventional low-pressure techniques are reviewed, while frac-pack and high-rate-water-pack are discussed and compared. The course analyses sand control best methods for sand control in horizontal drains and water injectors. Sand management is examined and its techniques are compared with sand control’s. Quality control procedures for sand control execution and job evaluation are reviewed and discussed. 

Main topics are: Basic Rock Mechanics, Sand Prediction, Methods for Sand Control, Gravel Pack Design, Screenless methods, High-Rate-Water-Pack, Frac Pack, Execution and Evaluation.
