  • Technical Forum on Sand Management - Call for Abstracts

    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.

    Don't want to present but want to attend, click on register now at the bottom of this page to make your booking.

    Presentation brief:

    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. Abstracts and presentations are invited from interested parties that will address, but not be limited to, the following topics:

    • To case or not to case, how do companies decide what to do?
    • Drivers and challenges for open vs cased hole completions in unconsolidated formations
    • Sand control technique selection in open vs cased hole wells
    • Drilling and completion fluid considerations for sand management in open vs cased hole wells
    • Lessons learned and best practices for sand management in open vs cased hole wells

    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.

    Abstracts and presentations are invited from interested parties that will address, but not be limited to, the following topics:

    • Delivering integrated sand management projects which require collaboration between multiple teams or companies
    • Collaboration in technology development or testing for sand production environments
    • Management processes and workflows to facilitate collaboration, both internally (between teams within a company) and externally (between multiple companies)
    • Application of software and technology to improve teamwork and collaboration
    • Lessons learned from failures in communication
    • Challenges to data sharing and collaboration in the industry

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - NETWORK TECHNICAL FORUM

Sand Management Network Technology Forum

9 February 2017

Topic: Geomechanics of the Sand face

 

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - Deadline 30th November 2016

 

The Sand Management Network invites you to submit a presentation abstract for the next members’ forum on the 9th February 2017. Your company need not be members of the Sand Management Network to make a presentation.

Hydrocarbon production is stress and pressure driven and Geomechanics is the science that seeks to understand the role of stresses and pressures in the safe exploitation of hydrocarbon from the reservoir to the sand face and wellbore. This forum is geared towards understanding how Geomechanics can be used to enhance production/injection through better sand management and sand control selection. It seeks to discuss how it can be used in today’s market environment to ensure that oil exploration and production is achieved in a safe, reliable and cost effective manner. You are invited to share case studies, modelling, best practices and recommendations on how geomechanical characterisation of the sand face can improve wellbore design to mitigate sand production, design sand control solutions and drive operational strategy in hydrocarbon production or water injection.

Topics of interest include:

  • Advanced sand production prediction methods
  • Advanced sand volumes prediction (producers and injectors)
  • Geomechanical consideration for HPHT, multilateral and injector wells
  • How Geomechanics drives the topsides sand management process and production optimisation.
  • Stresses and rock properties over time at the near wellbore

 

SUBMITTING ABSTRACTS

Send your abstract (maximum 200 words) to the Sand Management Network Manager - Email Katrina.dunbar@dunbar-eandm.co.uk by 30th November latest.

 

Non-member presentations welcome!

If you know of a presentation you’d like to hear from a company that is not a member of the Sand Management Network, please encourage them to submit an abstract.

 

The actual presentation will be required 1 week in advance of the workshop for review. It may include branding on the first/last slides only and must not include a ‘sales pitch’ for your organisation. Presentations will be posted on the members only website in PDF format after the event. No documents will be handed out to attendees.
