Gravel Pack

Gravel pack is a sand-control method used to prevent production of formation sand.

What is Sand Control ?

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, and potentially loss of containment.

In gravel pack operations, a steel screen is placed in the wellbore and the surrounding annulus packed with prepared gravel of a specific size designed to prevent the passage of formation sand. The primary objective is to stabilize the formation while causing minimal impairment to well productivity.
