Why Choose this Training Course? 

Integrated Sand Management is essential to safe operation of oil and gas fields. In addition, an integrated approach to sand management will deliver better productivity of the wells, minimise costs and ensure safe and steady operations of the wells and facilities. Sand management is concerned with sand, proppant and other associated solids from oil and gas wells. In the past, the standard approach was to install downhole sand control to stop sand from coming to surface. However, this has led to lower production from wells and higher well completion costs.

Nowadays, a holistic approach is required where the pros and cons of downhole sand control need to be balanced with managing safe levels of sand production to surface. Typically, this approach leads to significantly higher production and lower costs, while maintaining the safety and integrity of the wells and facilities. This informant and intensive PetroKnowledge training course will address how sand can be managed downhole, at surface or with a combination of the two. We look how you can develop a sand management strategy and plan, which will give the optimum result for your field.

This training course will highlight:

  • What is Integrated Sand Management
  • Basic design & operation considerations for sand control completions
  • How to select the preferred downhole sand control technique
  • Surface sand management options
  • Sand management strategy and plan
