water and sand production and petroleum exploitation

Petroleum and Oil Sands Exploration and Production | SpringerLink

Petroleum occurs in the microscopic pores of sedimentary rocks that form a reservoir – typically, reservoir rock consists of sand, sandstone, limestone, or dolomite. However, not all of the pores in a rock will contain petroleum – some will be filled with

Application of multilateral wells with limited sand

Multilateral wells with limited sand production are proposed to produce offshore heavy oil reservoirs. This technique was studied through lab experiments and numerical simulation. Permeability increases with sand production and formation fines of less tha

Sand control - OilfieldWiki

Sand control refers to managing/minimizing sand and fine production during petroleum production. Sand and fine produced with oil and gas can cause erosion and wear of production facilities/equipments, resulting in production downtime, expensive repairs, a

Environmental Impacts of Oil Exploration and Exploitation

British Petroleum (now Royal Dutch Shell) discovered crude oil at a village Oloibiri in Bayelsa state located within the Niger Delta of Nigeria (Onuoha, 2008; Anifowose, 2008) and commercial production began in 1958.Oil exploration and exploitation has be

Experimental Investigation of Characteristics of Sand

Sand production is the process in which formation sand and gravel would migrate into the wellbore by the flow of reservoir fluids. This is a significant problem that endangers the safety of hydrate exploitation. The aim of this study is to understand sand
