A Systematic Approach to Evaluate Sanding Potential Caused by Formation Shear Failure in Unconsolida
5 October 2022

ODSI dives into the critical issue of sand production in oil and gas extraction from unconsolidated reservoirs. Bryan Baptista, ODSI, details both microscopic and macroscopic shear failures that contribute to sand production, presents a variety of methodologies for quantifying sanding potential, and incorporates case studies for practical illustration. The presentation concluded with recommendations on how to manage these challenges to optimize recovery and minimize operational risks, emphasizing the importance of both qualitative and quantitative assessments in decision-making processes for well completion strategies.
