Paper Number: SPE-191406-PA
Published: 10 February 2021
.... Operational and mechanical factors that were empirically found to result in sand production were identified. The sand‐production model was run to verify the role played by different factors. It is shown that completion design, rock strength, and post‐failure behavior of the rock are key factors responsible...

Several PPG hydrogels were prepared by varying the concentrations of polyacrylamide and chromium triacetate [Cr(OAc) 3 ] as copolymer and crosslinker, respectively, using a central composite design. The characterization of these hydrogels...

... is that it does not have sufficient mechanical strength and it also adds weight to the cable. The EPDM can swell in oil (mineral oil, solvents, petroleum‐based products, and aromatic hydrocarbons) and to a lesser degree in water. For this reason, in ESP applications, it is a common practice to use inhibited brine...

For shale, we propose a surface treatment before plug placement that also prevents plug displacement under differential pressures. Strength...

The polymer skeleton covered by crystalline ammonium salts can increase the gel strength and salinity tolerance as a result of the unique structure of “crab's big claws.” The gelation performance is not seriously affected by the shearing effect...
