Abstract

This new screen invention will control reservoir fines as small as 30 to 70 microns (0.03 to 0.07 mm). This proposal involves a wire mesh screen, with an internal annular packed with a fiber resin coated sand that allows the fine siltstone to be absorbed into the fiber mesh and provide an effective sand control mechanism.

This deployment involves the development of a stand-alone screen sand control option. It combines some sand screen technology with annular proppant. The proppant would be a fiber, resin-coated sand that would facilitate the absorption of fine siltstone. The screens can either be prefilled before placing into the well, or, alternatively, they could be run into the hole empty and subsequently filled with a thick slurry of the resin coated proppant with inherent pore sizing to absorb and adhere 30 to 70 micron sand particles.
