Intake sand control screen and valve assembly
Protect your ESPs, rod lift pumps, and gas lift completions from solids in production by cleaning fluid flow.
Schlumberger specialty screens address the emerging unconventional sand control applications, where conventional gravel packs or screens or both are insufficient, such as heavy oil applications in thermal or nonthermal environments. These screens meet rigid quality control standards to ensure maximum screen strength, erosion resistance, and sand retention.
The MeshRite stainless steel wool screen delivers high flow capacity and plugging resistance with a patented 3D filter formed by wrapping layers of compressed steel wool onto a perforated basepipe and then covering it with a perforated shroud. The 40% open flow area and greater than 3,000-D air permeability result in almost no additional resistance to flow in the near-wellbore area or across the screen.
This economical screen reduces completion costs compared with gravel packs and many conventional screen alternatives and is ideal for reservoirs with unknown or poorly defined grain-size distributions or varied grain sizes.
FacsRite screens comprise premium-medium discs that are flush mounted and secured onto a basepipe, so the open flow area can be economically tailored to the well's productivity or injectivity requirements. In addition, the construction means the screens can be treated just like casing, and even drilled into place. Their high strength makes them a good alternative to wire-wrapped and prepacked screens for gravel-pack, frac-pack, and stand-alone screen applications.
Proprietary system improves ESP performance across a wide range of particle sizes in solids flowback.
Pump protection system filters sand and solids, outperforming conventional desanders.
Challenges of tight fracture-to-pore pressure window in unconsolidated reservoir overcome by meticulous collaboration, completion design, planning, and execution.
Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing technology has enabled a rapid growth of production from the Mississippi Lime Formation during the last five years. Well drilling and stimulation designs are being continuously improved, resulting in higher initial production rates.
