Sand management/control

To avoid costly interventions like sidetracking or wellbore abandonment, a check-valve system was installed near the sandface within three injector wells which prevented the mobilization of fines from the reservoir into the wellbore by stopping backflow.
This paper outlines issues to be resolved during facility design and provides guidelines, calculations, and examples for sand-handling steps to be implemented after separation.
The authors of this paper describe a coating designed for enhanced erosion resistance for standard wire-wrapped screens that consists of ceramic or hard metal applied by plasma spraying.
