As a critical sand component of many high value wells, openhole gravel packing provides a very successful option in obtaining an excellent, high-productivity, sand free completion. However, openhole completions often involve unfamiliar selection criteria and procedures versus the more routinely applied cased hole completions. While there are numerous components that feed into a successful gravel pack, some have a more significant impact on success than others. This presentation will highlight those specific components: from the initial data gathering up to the screen selection and fluids displacements. Important topics for discussion include proper openhole displacement practices, gravel pack technique selection, and problems that may arise in an openhole grave pack completion. Specific global case histories, in both deep and shallow water completions, will be used to illustrate some of the major pitfalls that may be encountered. These case histories include examples from both alpha beta and shunt gravel packing along with cases where execution issues resulted in complete sand control failure due to incomplete packs. These incomplete packs were caused by a variety of design/execution problems including: screen plugging, early screenout, and poor fluid quality control. Proven strategies for avoiding these catastrophic failures will be presented along with the case histories.
