This 2-day Sand Production Prediction and Sand Managementcourse helps participants better understand the likelihood of sand (solids) production during the field lifetime, sand production prediction evaluation methods, sand control types and selection of sand control and the principles of sand (solids) management in oil and gas wells.

Topics include:

  • Physics of rock failure and sand production
  • Sand management principles
  • In situ stresses and rock strength modelling
  • Rock strength testing for sanding analysis, procedures, QC and log-calibration
  • Grain size analysis principles, best practices
  • Sand production prediction methods: empirical, analytical and numerical
  • Merits and limitations of current sand prediction methodologies
  • Case studies of sand production prediction, validation with field data
  • Sand control methods: active & passive sand controls, surface handling, selection criteria
  • Merits of today’s sand control technologies and process of defining optimum sand control type
  • Solids lift modelling and sanding monitoring
  • Assessing severity and implication of compaction on sand control

Target audience:

    This course is for anyone interested or involved in making decisions regarding sand management strategies, sanding evaluation, field, well and core data acquisition, the impact of sand control on well performance and the optimum sand control method.
  • Development Geologists
  • Petrophysicists and Rock Mechanics Specialists
