Abstract

A detailed analysis of 341 internally gravel-packed zones in wells from three oil fields was carried out to determine which parameters significantly influence the placement of the gravel in such a completion and the well's resulting productivity.The database analysis demonstrates that, in addition to the well-known impairing factors, such as dirty completion fluids and viscous fluid-loss control pills, the performance of gravel packs can be improved by increasing the number of perforations - especially in 7" completions. This suggests that the perforation tunnel is the most critical area in an internally gravel-packed completion.
