Baker Sand Control, a Mobil authorized supplier, has installed many of the ALLPAK gravel packs
in use today.
The market study includes various types of Sand Control Systems used in the drilling industry such as Gravel Pack
Systems, Frac Pack Systems, Sand Screens and Inflow Control Devices among others.
ESS provides both a production enhancing and cost-saving alternative to current sand control techniques, such as gravel pack
completions and traditional sand screens.
Following a gravel pack
failure in mid-1998, Houston Exploration assumed operations of the well and restored production in the lower horizon on March 27, 1999, with an initial flow rate of 9.
During pumping, oil is often filtered through gravel packs
to remove particulates.
The Constrictor annular barrier tool is an alternative to traditional gravel packs
or expandable screens, preventing fines migration in the annulus to maintain production through use of thermodynamic absorption of hydrocarbons in rubber.
