Solids Production

Excessive solids production can present major obstacles to hydrocarbon production through reduced production rates, sand bridging, erosion of equipment, and sand disposal and removal.

Halliburton Sand Control Services provides a single source of solutions for all of your sand control challenges. Our sand control services begin with an in-depth analysis of the reservoir and well conditions to help design and select the optimum fluid systems and downhole equipment for every well.

In addition to the primary sand control completions such as gravel packing, high-rate water packs, frac pack treatments, horizontal screen-only completions, and horizontal gravel pack, Halliburton provides remedial chemical treatments to control excessive solids production when the primary sand control completion does not serve its purpose or has failed.
