Alternate Path Sand Screens

Ensure full annular packs and eliminate screenouts

The exclusively licensed Alternate Path sand screens use shunt tubes to create an alternate slurry path that allows the slurry to bypass bridges and fill in voids. This screen and tube configuration helps ensure a complete annular pack and eliminate screenouts, reducing the risks of screen and gravel-pack failure and deterioration in well productivity and increasing completion longevity and reliability.

The Alternate Path system uses shunt-tube technology to fill in the voids left during gravel packing, maximizing efficiency. The shunt-tube diversions ensure uniform gravel packing and help prevent premature screenout, erosion hot spots, hardware damage, and completion failure.
