... The discovery of Rubiales dates back to 1980 and since then it has been developed up until 2006, when it came to full production ( Florez Anaya and Osorio, 2014 ). The sand control completion strategies in Rubiales wells are mainly cased hole and openhole gravel packing for vertical and deviated...

Sand production often causes significant problems at the surface when the well is online. The best approach to sand control is to keep it inside...

Sand production is commonly associated with contributing factors such as unconsolidated formation, initiation of water breakthrough and changes in rock stresses due to depleted reservoir pressure. To mitigate sand production, operators often opt for applying mechanical or chemical downhole sand control...

... Abstract Traditional sand control sizing has typically been based on "standard", wide-sieve gravel distributions (i.e. 20/40, 16/30, etc). Historic sand retention testing has therefore been limited to these standard gravel (i.e. proppant) sizes. With the emergence of new proppant...
