RGL Research on Sand Control to be Presented at Iconic ATCE

Calgary, AB – April 13, 2018 – The program committee of the esteemed SPE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition (ATCE) has accepted an RGL technical paper on sand control, which will be presented in Dallas, Texas, in late September. The flagship SPE event, which attracts industry professionals from around the world, received a record number of more than 2,500 paper proposals for consideration.

The technical paper entitled “Standalone Sand Control Corrosion and Plugging: Review of Slotted liner, Wire Wrap Screen and Premium Screen Plugging and Corrosion” explores the effects of corrosion and plugging of slotted liners, wire wrapped screens, and premium mesh screens. Using four samples of standalone screens from operating wells, RGL researchers outline how design of the tortuous path based on effective pore size to stop sand production affects the amount of plugging significantly.

ATCE has long been recognized as the premier industry event where innovation, technical advancement, best practices, and case studies are shared and acknowledged. As the industry recovers, the generation of new technology, testing and further development of innovations are significant, making this meeting of minds highly regarded.

For over 30 years, RGL has earned a reputation for proven experience in slotted and seamed liner manufacturing and sand control technology. Having outfitted over 25,000 oil wells with sand control liners, flow control devices and downhole thermal tools for projects in the Canadian oil sands, the Middle East, Mexico, South America and around the globe, RGL technology solutions are designed to handle the most challenging oil reservoir conditions.
