Why Is Understanding Sand Retention And Flow Behavior At The Sand-Screen Interface Important? | Absolute Completion Technologies
The characteristics of formation sand and its relative consolidation can vary significantly along the length of a horizontal wellbore. Sand characteristics influence to a very large degree the porosity, permeability and ultimate productivity of the reservoir, and there is very little the completion engineer can do to improve these reservoir properties.
- Porosity refers to the number and size of spaces or pores in the rock.
- Permeability refers to the connectivity or channels between pores in the rock.
