Sand production





Sand production is the production of small or large amounts of sand together with the reservoir fluids. These amounts of produced sand vary from a few grams or less per ton of produced reservoir fluid to huge amounts possibly leading to complete filling of the borehole
Some carbonate reservoirs may also produce solids. Unexpectedly produced sand can lead to erosion, loss of integrity and potential fatalities
Conversely, unnecessarily installing sand control can be expensive and detrimental to productivity and reservoir management
The ability to predict when a reservoir will fail and produce sand is fundamental to deciding whether to use down hole sand control and what type of sand control to use


Why do we need Sand control

Well operability Downhole equipment failure

Shut in production due to sanding up Tubing, casing, separators, flow lines

Environmental and Safety Erosion of wellheads and surface piping


Consequences of Sand Production


Production interruptions can be caused by sand plugging the casing, tubing, flow lines and separators

Casing collapse can be caused by changes in overburden pressures and stresses in the formation


Down hole and surface equipment can be destroyed, downtime and replacement costs, spills and in extreme cases a blowout

Disposal of produced sands is costly
