... As indicated by Saucier (1974 ), particle bridging is not a satisfactory sand-retention mechanism for gravel packs under realistic wellbore flow conditions. This suggests that gravel packs should be designed to have small enough pore throats for particle straining. Derivation of an analytical...

Paper Number: SPE-179024-MS
... Abstract Soft sand wells are typically more expensive completions due to the need for sand control. The sheer cost of the wells makes the completions more high risk and increases the need for laboratory testing to validate the screen or gravel pack sizing as well as drill-in fluid selection and...
