Expandable Screens | Weatherford International

Expandable sand screens support your wellbore while offering exceptional sand control-capabilities. Compliant screen expansion conforms to the wellbore, stabilizes the formation, reduces the completion skin, and minimizes frictional pressure losses.

PetroGuard® Swell Screen - Halliburton

PetroGuard® Swell screens provide an alternative to traditional expandable sand control techniques. The design combines Halliburton's Swell Technology™ systems with bonded mesh filtration media to provide a self-expanding screen which delivers the benefits associated with traditional expandable solutions, but with greatly reduced risk.

SAND CONTROL SOLUTIONS: Expandable sand screen

An expandable sand screen offered the ability to control sand production without a frac-pack, but also promised to overcome the plugging and erosion problems of stand-alone screens. Further, the elimination of the frac-pack brought the project into economic reality by lowering the initial cost as well as reducing the risk of early water .

Expandable screen offers new option for sand control | Oil

Expandable screen offers new option for sand control. The first open hole expandable sand screen (ESS) has been field tested in a Shell Expro Ltd. well in the southern North Sea ( Fig. 1 [96,757 .

US6695054B2 - Expandable sand screen and methods for

A particulate screen suitable for use in a wellbore. The particulate screen is expandable and may be at least partially formed of a bistable tubular. Also, a filter media may be combined with the bistable tubular to limit influx of particulates.

Opening New Flow Path in Expandable Sand Screens - 36

An oil producer was completed with three 6-5/8” expandable sand screens covering the upper and lower formations. The two uppermost screens each contained inflow control devices to balance the flow across the two intervals. After initial high gas rates, the well experienced a quick decline. Water broke in and required gas lift to produce.

Using expandable sand screens in unconsolidated

The Petroline unit of Weatherford Completion Systems, was granted a license from Shell to develop expandable slotted tubulars and related products. One of the resulting products was the expandable sand screen (ESS), introduced in 1999 after five years of research and development.

Elfen Wellbore | Wellbore Scale | Rockfield

Assessment of well-life integrity of expandable sand screen systems via direct interaction between screen and formation affected by drawdown and depletion. Detailed well-string model in highly compacting reservoirs, capturing buckling and wrinkling failure modes of casing.

Endurance Hydraulic Screen® - Halliburton

Endurance Hydraulic Screen ® is a compliant screen that delivers a new level of sand control completion, providing reservoir compliance through positive wellbore support. The system removes the annular gap between the screen and open hole upon hydraulic activation. The Endurance Hydraulic Screen helps meet the challenge of sand production along with its effects on productivity and on …

Fifteen Years of Expandable-Sand-Screen Performance and

Summary. Expandable-sand-screen (ESS), a technology concept envisaged by Shell and initially developed by Petroline, was first field trialed in 1997 with the idea that eliminating the annulus between the sand screen and wellbore would improve downhole sand control and allow enhanced reservoir performance and management.

Expandable Sand Screens, रेत छानने की मशीन, सैंड

Celebrating over 10 years of ESS ® expandable sand screen success. Since 1999, when Weatherford deployed its first expandable completion system, ESS systems has been changing the face of sand control, improving well productivity and significantly reducing costs. Expandable screens filter all but the smallest sand grains, which are produced.

Expandable Sand Screen: Three New World Records in the

The selected option was the Expandable Sand Screen. This novel approach, developed by Shell Technology with Weatherford Completion Systems (WCS) having a licence, was preferred to conventional methods, such as ‘Gravelpack', due primarily to the larger bore it provides to maximise deliverability and the high potential to eliminate annular flow .

US20040238168A1 - Expandable sand control screen

The expandable sand control screen assembly as recited in claim 68 wherein the seal member is an inflatable seal member that is in fluid communication with an inflation fluid source that provides an inflation fluid to the inflatable seal member to selectively urge the inflatable seal member into sealing engagement with the at least one opening.

Tech Paper Multizone Horizontal Openhole Gravel Pack with External Zonal Isolation and Inflow Control Devices Allows for Production of Left-Behind Reserves in Sand-Prone Reservoirs . Oil production from the Llanos foreland basin in Colombia is seriously affected by sand production and high water cut. Sand production has been successfully controlled with horizontal openhole gravel packs .

Sand Control Completion Strategy - ScienceDirect

 · Expandable Sand Screens This is the most commonly used screen. The expandable sand screen (ESS) has a slotted or perforated base pipe – for borehole support and screens – for sand control (in various mesh sizes) and an outer protective shroud – which protects the screen during deployment and service life.
