New Technology Developed For Sand Control

Statoil has developed a new technology to calculate erosion which is caused by sand production in oil wells, based on production data of each well, as stated by Oilonline. In the past the limit of sand production has been low, but without limits field production could increase by 30,000 b/d of oil. The project has shown that it is not appropiate to apply the same sand production limit to all wells. The project will continue until October and erosion will be monitored in all wells.
