The Sand Management Network invites you to submit a presentation abstract for the upcoming members’ forum on the 20 Feb 2019. Your company need not be members of the Sand Management Network to make a presentation.

Morning Session – Sand Management for Open vs Cased Hole Wells

Sand production considerations can vary significantly between open and cased hole wells, which may necessitate different approaches to sand management. 

Afternoon Session – Improving Sand Management through Collaboration

The industry is facing increased challenges from more extreme well conditions, a drive for improved efficiency, volatile oil prices and tighter regulation. Overcoming such challenges necessitates greater collaboration between Operators, Service Companies and Technology Providers, which forms the basis of this discussion.
