  • 9th Euroforum, in association with SPE Aberdeen

    Due to government guidelines and the ongoing pandemic we are postponing the date for the Euroforum to 16 - 18 March 2021 at Ardoe House Hotel, Aberdeen.  We feel this will make for a more successful event, retaining the exhibition and networking elements of previous Euroforums.

    The pre conference workshop will take place on Tuesday 16 March and the main forum on 17 & 18 March 2021. We hope that the schedule will remain largely the same as previously advertised but will update you as soon as we can.

    For those who booked to attend, exhibit, sponsor or present you will be hearing from us very shortly.

Abstract; Debate on the most effective sand management strategy has been intense for many years, with different companies adopting different strategies.
Development of appropriate strategy for the management of reservoirs with sanding problems is rather complex and requires an integrated approach to finding the optimum solution to solving the problem. This requires integration of key aspects of reservoir characterisation, drilling, completion and production technologies including sand tolerances (Seabed wellhead/flowlines, topside facilities) . Mitigation of sanding requires reliable sanding prediction, precise well design, accurate technology selection as well as optimum completion strategy. These are transient phenomena requiring a life cycle real time management.
In this paper attempts have been made to address the key issues with sand management. The paper goes further to provide a case for lifecycle intelligent sand management including the current technological innovations and future challenges in terms of technology gaps.  

The paper ends with an introduction of the Sand Management Network – A Network of upstream oil and gas operating companies and service providers with interest in sand management. The Network purpose is to share successful methods and technologies as well as promote best practices in the management of sand.
