A Novel Sand Control Testing Facility to Evaluate the Impact of Radial Flow Regime on Screen Performance and its VerificationDownload
Optimum design of the sand control devices in oil sand reservoirs plays a vital role in minimizing the sand production and increasing the reservoir productivity in Steam-Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) operations. Various sand control testing facilities have been developed to evaluate the...
This paper reviews the state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical methods on fines migration around Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) wellbores. The in-situ migratory particles can deposit in the pore space and result in pore throat plugging within the porous medium. This process...
A Set of Graphical Design criteria for Slotted Liners in SteamAssisted Gravity Drainage Production WellsDownload
Slotted liners have been widely used in steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) wells owing to their low cost and superior mechanical integrity. Multiple factors affect the performance of slotted liners, such as particle size distribution (PSD) of formation sands, aperture size, slot density,...
Slotted liners are widely used in steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) wells to control sand production and sustain wellbore productivity. The slotted liner can provide desirable performance when appropriately designed. A literature review indicates a limited number of studies that offer design...
Developing a Methodology to Characterize Formation Damage (Pore Plugging) due to Fines Migration in Sand Control TestsDownload
Stand-alone screens (SAS) have been widely used in steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) operations. Although many researchers investigated the flow performance of SAS through sand control tests, the formation damage (pore plugging) due to fines migration has not been characterized under...
Experimental Correlations for the Performance and Aperture Selection of Wire Wrapped Screens in Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage Production WellsDownload
Wire-wrapped screens (WWSs) are one of the most-commonly used devices by steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) operators because of the capacity to control plugging and improve flow performance. WWSs offer high open-to-flow area (OFA) (6 to 18%) that allow a high release of fines, hence, less...
Influence of Penetration Rate and Indenter Diameter in Strength Measurement by Indentation Testing on Small Rock SpecimenDownload
Indentation testing has been developed as an unconventional method to determine intact rock strength using small rock specimens within the size of drill cuttings. In previous investigations involving indentation testing, researchers have used different indenter stylus geometries, penetration...
Punched screen as a stand-alone screen is gaining more and more popularity in Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) operations. However, the literature contains limited studies for proper aperture size selection and the performance of the punched screen. This paper aims at investigating the...
