This workshop will be devoted to sand control techniques and related issues associated with deep water completions and operations.
The workshop will focus on current technologies being applied to deep water completions, with emphasis on how those technologies are selected, applied, and the results achieved. The objective is to clearly establish what the best practices are in deep water and what should be avoided.
Production engineers involved in improving and optimising production from deep water sand control completions, e.g. intervention, stimulation, flow assurance, etc.
Subsea engineers interested in understanding the challenges posed by sand producing reservoirs and how these might affect subsea installations.
