Fit-For-Purpose Sand Screens Address Cost-Benefit Balance
Operators continue to look to prolific high-permeability, clastic reservoirs in basins around the world. The use of high-deviation and horizontal well trajectories in these fields improves productivity but increases the challenges of sand control.
Factors Governing the Performance of Multilayered Metal-Mesh Screens
Multilayered metal-mesh screens (MMSs) are widely used as standalone screens for sand control in unconsolidated formations. It is often found that screens with the same filter-layer nominal rating perform differently.
Evaluating Sand-Screen Performance With Sand-Retention Tests and Numerical Modeling
This paper presents a combined experimental and numerical-modeling study on sand-screen performance. The objective is to develop an improved methodology for optimal sand-screen-aperture selection by addressing some of the limitations present in existing sand-retention tests.
