Performance and Design of Water Injector Wells Requiring Sand Control

10 – 12 September 2013

San Diego, California | Bahia Resort Hotel

About this Workshop


Injectors with sand control completions have challenges with sustaining injectivity, preventing injector failures, and keeping injection in zone. Numerous and different water injectors with sand control have been installed and injecting in many high-rate projects around the globe. The main purpose of this workshop is to review field performances of different sand control injectors, share the latest injector completion, monitoring and surveillance operational best practices, and discuss the mechanics of containing injection fluids in zone.

Who should attend?

  • Production and completion engineers
  • Operation and production personnel
  • Reservoir engineers
  • Petrophysicists
  • Geomechanical engineers
  • Academia

Workshop Guidelines

Workshops maximize the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices.

Many of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements and lessons learned. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and members of the press are not invited to attend.


Proceedings from the workshop will not be published; therefore, formal papers and handouts are not requested of speakers or panel members. A URL containing released copies of the workshop presentations will be available to attendees following the workshop.


In remaining consistent with workshop objectives and SPE guidelines, commercialism in presentations will not be permitted. Company logos should be used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter(s).

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Attendees will receive 2.0 CEUs.

One CEU equals 10 contact hours of participation. CEUs will be awarded through SPE Professional Development for participation and completion of SPE workshop. A permanent record of a participant's involvement and awarding of CEUs will be maintained by SPE.
