Sand ingress and production in large amounts pose severe and unique challenges to operators during all phases of completion and production operations.

Lessons learned from years of producing sand in conventional sandstone reservoirs can be applied to shale wells, and innovations in shale may offer new ideas for dealing with sand in mature conventional fields.

"Participants will have exposure to a range of case studies, technical advancements and best practices pertain to the sand management. In addition, the workshop is a great opportunity for the participants to strengthen their technical capabilities to make more informative decisions during their daily activities "

Olof Nilsson

"Creating forums for suppliers and operators to learn about each other challenges and solutions is very important. Sand management workshops have been hosted in Europe, North America and Asia. Now, the time has come to address these challenges in the Caspian region"

Philip Wassouf

"You will have the opportunity to network, gain knowledge from and exchange ideas with the global sand management community. Whether your expertise is surface or downhole, hardware or software, technical or managerial, there will be people and presentations of value!"

Ulvi Agayev

"The workshop could be an important platform for addressing the challenges facing the oil and gas industry as it transitions to a more sustainable and low-carbon energy system. By sharing best practices, promoting innovation, and encouraging collaboration, participants can help to ensure that the industry continues to play an important role in meeting the world's energy needs while also protecting the environment"

Ehtiram Azizov

"Attending this workshop creates an opportunity for operating and service companies to share their experiences in the arena of designing wells with sand in mind, remediating the problem once it occurs in a well/asset/facility life, predicting and monitoring for sand as well as managing sand and its erosion risk on surface. Learn from each other's cases and experiences and through discussion and collaboration potentially identify new ways of applying existing technologies or coming up with new technologies and/or applications"
