PetroGuard Advanced Mesh Screen

What is the driver?


Current standalone screens have exhibited: Questionable performance
Ratty or poorly sorted sands Heavy oil

Room for improvement regarding longevity in SAS completion conditions Susceptible to plugging in high fines content reservoirs Relatively low dirt retention

Design Constraints and Considerations


Maintain filtration efficiency
Handle a wide range of particle sizes and solids concentrations

Damage tolerant
Mechanically robust

Reduce design option limitations


Limited number of micron ratings Combine different weave types, if necessary

Goals of New Screen Design


Increase dirt-holding capacity
The amount of solids that can build up on a filter before an excessive pressure drop is seen

High-plugging resistance
Dramatic increase in life span, particularly in heavy oil completions

Maintain mechanical integrity Design variability for each individual well or field
Rapid design methodology and testing

Design Concept to Improve Retention


Use multiple layers of mesh Design number and rating of layers for a specific particle size distribution Place larger pore mesh on the outside; finer mesh on the inside Each layer filters smaller and smaller particles Final filtration mesh flow area is reserved for retention of appropriate reservoir particles

Depth Filtration
Largely discredited due to old style materials
Typically a media with non-uniform pore structure Pore size control is virtually impossible Tortuous production path Difficult or impossible to clean (backflush)

PetroGuard Advanced Mesh Filtration


A completely new concept Uniform pore structure within each layer Pore size control is very precise No tortuous paths Easily y cleaned (back-flush or acid) The performance of this type of structure has been proven in polymer filtration.

Conclusions
Concept works for heavy oil wells. Concept also works for conventional wells, not just heavy oil. The higher the PSD uniformity coefficient and/or the greater the percentage of fines fines, the better the concept works works. Applicable for SAS type completions but may also be used in GP completions. Suitable for PoroFlex expandable screen application
