SPE Workshop: Sand Management in Production of Unconventional Resources 2 - 4 Mar 2021 DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dallas - Market Center Dallas, Texas, USA


Horizontal shale well completions require large amounts of sand which present unique challenges to operators during all phases of completion and production.  This workshop will take a deep look at the production challenges related to sand in unconventional reservoirs from several different perspectives including varying aspects of the reservoir, the wellbore, and the surface facilities.  Operators and service companies will share technologies, experiences, and lessons learned with sand management in shale resource production. 



Workshop Topics

Reservoir, wellbore productivity, and injectivity impact
Sand prevention and control strategies
Wellbore lateral remediation strategies
Artificial lift for the sand production life cycle
Quantifying sand production
Sand management at the wellhead and surface production facilities
Detecting and managing erosion and system integrity
Application of Digitalization and Data technology


Those involved in production operations, reservoir engineering, well maintenance, facilities engineering, artificial lift and completions would benefit from attending.
