For sand control applications where a more efficient filtration media is required, the PetroGuard® Mesh-DS (Dual Shroud) screen provides effective solids filtration in a shrouded, non-bonded mesh screen. Woven mesh often provides better performance than wire-wrapped screen in unconsolidated formations. This is especially true when it comes to filtering a high percentage of fines in formations with more poorly sorted sands. The unique construction of PetroGuard Mesh-DS screen optimizes inflow area and filtration efficiency to provide superior sand control completion performance.
- Optimizes inflow performance, supports mesh layer, and helps maintain sand control integrity in all load scenarios
- Eliminates cross flow of solids at end of filter cartridge and provides superior cartridge attachment
The PetroGuard Mesh-DS screen consists of a perforated basepipe and a non-bonded mesh filter cartridge, and is an updated version of Halliburton's proven single-layer mesh sand screen. It uses a "dual shroud" design to contain the filter mesh, creating a filter cartridge that can be installed on essentially any size or material basepipe. The PetroGuard Mesh-DS screen can be used as a standalone system or in conjunction with gravel or frac pack applications, providing a reliable barrier against production of formation sands. When used in conjunction with other technologies such as EquiFlow® inflow control devices and zonal isolation tools, the PetroGuard Mesh-DS screen is truly the heart of a total sand control solution.
