... of projects. One of the first issue to tackle in studying this phenomenon is the quantification of the sand production and, equally important, the impact it has on the well and reservoir behavior. Building on already published work, a sand production model is proposed that accounts for the mechanical damage...

... Abstract Borehole instability, sand production, and completion failures during production and pore pressure depletion continue to be significant problems confronting the petroleum industry. This study develops quantitative models for predicting borehole shear failure in pressure-depleted...

... Abstract An engineering analytical model for sand mass prediction is presented. The model is based on a sand production function with parameters correlated to the uniaxial compressive strength of the formation. The model is used for the prediction of sand production in an inclined perforated...

... Abstract In general, sand production in oil/gas reservoirs in weak formations has an adverse impact on production costs. For efficient reservoir management, predictive tools are needed to quantitatively mitigate and control sand production. A fully coupled sand production model that integrates...

... Abstract Sand production is an important well completion issue impacting well economics and possibly casing stability. This study compares predictions of sanding and casing deformation for a well in the GOM shelf, done prior to completion of the well to the results of a post-sanding event...

... are exceeded. In this paper a new analytic model for predicting the rate of continuous (steady-state) sand production is described. This sanding rate model is consistent with the threshold prediction model, and utilizes as its basis the non-dimensionalized concepts of loading factor (near-wellbore formation...

... of conservatism in their prediction of sanding in high pressure wells. We provide a plausible explanation for this behavior which is attributed to the underlying proposition that sand production occurs when sand fails. While this supposition is used in all applications of such models, in deep, high stress...
