Unexpected and uncontrolled sand production results in costly well intervention work and, in some cases, can result in environmental hazards due to the release of hydrocarbons associated with catastrophic wellhead and production equipment failure. CSIRO has developed capability and predictive tools for sand management to address this issue and to minimise or mitigate these hazards in the oil and gas industry.
CSIRO has developed capability and predictive tools for sand erosion challenges in the oil and gas industry. We assist industry to address their sand erosion issues and seek to predict, minimise or mitigate these hazards.
