Novel well-completion techniques prevent sand influx without using mechanical screens. When engineered and executed carefully, these methods reduce cost and risk by eliminating conventional sand-control equipment and rig operations. This approach helps operators rehabilitate production and tap bypassed zones to improve reserve recovery; it also maintains fullbore access across pay intervals. We review associated rigless technologies and screenless applications in Saudi Arabia, the Gulf of Mexico and Italy.
