An improved through-tubing sand control technique was utilized recently to enhance reservoir recovery and improve life-cycle economics. This coiled tubing-conveyed method uses several technical innovations that improve the reliability of the vent screen sand control completion. The innovations can be shown to: (1) improve the rate at which reserves can be recovered; (2) improve completion efficiency; (3) reduce mechanical risk; (4) reduce completion costs; (5) extend the economic life of the well; and (6) control fines migration.
