Paper presented at the SPE Canada Heavy Oil Conference, September 28–October 2, 2020
Paper Number: SPE-199960-MS
... Sand production is one of the main concerns affecting well productivity during cold and thermal operation. Many studies provided possible solutions to such phenomenon and optimized the best approach to achieve a better result. This paper investigates the application of a HPHT Sand Retention...

Paper Number: SPE-189766-MS
... Abstract Injector wells in thermal field developments in Western Canada are usually completed by slotted liners. The purpose of liner installation is preventing sand production after a shut-in, keeping a stable wellbore, and providing an appropriate steam distribution. The objective...

Paper Number: SPE-185967-MS
... Abstract Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) producer wells in the McMurray formation require sand control technologies that will limit sand production while minimizing production constraints caused by high pressure drops and liner plugging. Previous publications around sand control...

Paper Number: SPE-174425-MS
... Abstract Optimizing the efficiency of the waterflood displacement process in heavy oils is critical to reaching the oil recovery goals. However, in the process of finding an economic and stable throughput for the process, in some cases significant sand production and generation of wormholes...

... representation of wormhole generation and advance. One well had rapid sand production that quickly declined whereas the other well had continuous sand production due to wormhole propagation and scouring and resulted in sustained oil production. The reservoir model for the application of CSI contained a number...

... matches predicted the reservoir conditions (e.g. pressure, effective permeability, effective porosity, fluid saturations, and mole fraction profiles) at the end of CHOPS to set up the CSI initial reservoir conditions (i.e. the start of CSI). Oil, water and sand production were well matched for both...

... enhancing oil mobility. Continued sand production from a CHOPS well enables growth of a disturbed zone of higher porosity and permeability near the well bore and generation of long, small channels that facilitate drainage. The affected zone can approach a diameter of 100 m to 200 m around the well bore...

..., resulting in large mass of sanding. The sand production in well will not only lead to serious abrasion wear on down-hole and surface equipment, even well sand-up or sand burial accident, but also decrease of recovery efficiency and oil well abandonment ( Tian, H., et al., 2005 ; Li, A.F., et al., 2004...
