Sand management/control

A well-flux surveillance method to monitor and ramp up production for openhole standalone screen completions is described that optimizes production by considering risks of production impairment and screen-erosion failure.
Skipping one traditional step in the supply chain might save oil and gas companies hundreds of millions of dollars a year while making a meaningful dent in emissions.
Field examples presented in the complete paper describe principles of data acquisition with a sand-detection tool when run in combination with a production logging string and results of logging in slightly deviated wells completed with sand screens.
