      3M™ Ceramic Sand Screen Solutions: Strong Defence Against Formation Sand

      Sand control is an essential component of many wells. Formation sand can choke oil or gas production, hindering your processes and resulting in damaged equipment and costs. The advanced and unique properties of technical ceramics used in 3M™ Ceramic Sand Screens offer efficient proppant flowback control for demanding conditions where erosion and corrosion are major challenges. They are engineered to simplify complex sand control methods, enhance the productivity and efficiency of your flow capacity, and minimise wear under reservoir conditions.

      • 10x harder than metallic screens
      • Proven to resist wear even under high-velocity flows
      • Eliminate the need for complex sand control methods
      • Customisable for almost any prevailing wellbore condition
      • Suitable for High-Pressure and High-Temperature (HPHT) applications

    Ceramic Sand Screen Applications

    • 3m sand control methods are proven to resist wear even under high-velocity flows
      Wells with Corrosion and Erosion Issues

      Maximise flow capacity, productivity, and well life, while lowering capital expenditure. 3M™ Ceramic Sand Screens provide effective downhole sand control while resisting erosion from sand and corrosion from water and harsh chemicals. Ideal for:

      • Oil or gas wells with high production rates and risk of erosion
      • Depleted reservoirs with high gas velocity
      • Gravel pack completions prone to “hot spotting” with metallic screens
    • 3m ceramic sand control screens are a proven alternative to gravel pack sand control techniques
      Stand-Alone Screens as an Alternative to Gravel Packing

      Avoid costly sand control failures and workovers. The design of standalone 3M™ Ceramic Sand Screens encourages a natural sand pack formation around the sand screen without compromising productivity. Enjoy:

      • Easy deployment via wireline/slickline, coiled tubing, or conventional rig system
      • Simplified preplanning, logistics, and deployment for offshore and remote locations
      • Suitable for higher fine particle environments
    • explore sand control techniques by 3M to prevent sand problems in oil and gas wells and learn how to control sand mining
      Intervention in Failed Sand Control

      Reduce the frequency of sand screen replacements in challenging environments. The exceptional durability of 3M™ Ceramic Sand Screens helps avoid repetition of erosion or corrosion failure in failed sand control completions.

      • Optimise productivity where sand volume is being maintained by sand control
      • Unlock wells where sand failure has occurred
      • Retrofit failed wells by setting 3M™ Ceramic Sand Screens across or above failed sand control completion

      HPHT Environments

      High reservoir pressure, temperature, and gas production rates are persistent sand control challenges. The custom design of 3M™ Ceramic Sand Screens, made of ceramic materials that can withstand up to 1800ºC, offer superior corrosion and erosion resistance under HPHT conditions to address reservoir challenges and target production rates.

      • Downhole longevity and reliability for costly and complex HPHT completions
      • Corrosion-resistant, suitable for steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) applications
      • Simplified well design, completions and operations, including subsea interventions
    • 3m ceramic sand screens control sand problems like proppant flowback in oil and gas wells
      Proppant Flowback Prevention

      Made of abrasion-resistant silicon carbide, 3M™ Ceramic Sand Screens mitigate wash-out erosion compared to all steels and hard-coated steels tested. Resolve proppant flowback issues as these screens offer outstanding erosion resistance against abrasive proppants, directly addressing the root cause of failures commonly seen with metallic sand control systems.

      • Can be deployed and set as through-tubing after frac job
      • Increased well life-cycle longevity and production rates
      • Suitable for oil or gas wells with high production rates and risk of erosion
