Sand control is vital to reliable production in many sandstone reservoirs where sand can present a major obstacle to well production. The petroleum industry spends millions of dollars each year to prevent and repair sand control problems including reduced production rates, sand bridging, erosion of equipment, and sand disposal and removal. Halliburton Sand Control Services provides a single source of solutions for these and other sand control problems. Halliburton offers dedicated equipment and total services for gravel packing, high-rate water packs, frac pack treatments, horizontal screen-only completions, and horizontal gravel packs—all of which can be supported with computer simulated designs.
Halliburton sand control services start with an in-depth analysis of the reservoir and well conditions. Once a sand control method has been chosen, the design of the related fluid systems and downhole equipment can begin. Halliburton provides specialized surface and downhole equipment including gravel pack packers and screens to inhibit the movement of formation sand into the wellbore, surface pumping equipment, fluid systems, and filtration systems. Sand control completion services are customized to suit individual well and reservoir requirements designed to capture the best value from the asset.
