Screenless Sand Control Completions

Chemical consolidation and proppant-flowback control

Screenless completions use chemical consolidation treatments and proppant packs with proppant-flowback control additives to keep formation sand and proppant from entering the wellbore. The technique eliminates the skin associated with screens and gravel packs and provides full wellbore access.

Eliminate the rig to reduce costs

Screenless sand control operations can be performed without a rig, overcoming the limitations of screened completions and providing a cost-effective method of sand control for primary and remedial completions.
