Sand management Level 1 course is specifically intended for young aspiring engineers working in oil and gas upstream operations either as operator or service providers. The course of 2 days includes introduction to the various field production issues related to sand production being most inherent producing reservoir rocks in oil and gas exploitation. There will be an overview of reservoir traps and mechanism followed by types of completions normally employed in current oil and gas production. Some general theory on sand production and its prediction are also explained including brief summaries of sand control methods being applied during well design and also remediation of sand production during production.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Determine the causes of sand production
  • Understand reservoir type and mechanism
  • Select the best sand control method
  • Prepare the well for the proper application of sand control
  • Apply best practices to ensure successful sand control completions
  • Evaluate sand control performance
  • Determine sand management requirement


  • Introduction to oil production system and field development Plan
  • Reservoir types and mechanisms
  • Surface Facility
  • Completions design and operation
  • Associated to completion problems
  • Introduction to rock mechanics
  • Sand production mechanism and early detection of issues
  • Sand Prediction
  • Sand transport erosion
  • Sand monitoring
  • Sand management requirement
 DAY 3
  • Sand mitigation
  • Sand control selection
  • Sand control equipment
  • Case studies
