Sand ingress into the wellbore is a major problem for reservoir engineers and can lead to a reduced rate of oil and gas production, erosion of completion
and downhole tools, and damage to surface equipment. Wire mesh sand screens are one method of sand control that helps mitigate against the negative impacts of sand and fines in a producing well. Our new case study details our project with a multinational energy corporation and well owner, and a screen manufacturer to optimise the operational life of wire mesh sand screens to maintain production volumes for a longer duration.
