Journal of Petroleum Technology features RGL research

December 05, 2018


Calgary, AB – December 5, 2018
– The Journal of Petroleum Technology featured a technical paper written by RGL in its recent October issue. The publication recommended reading the paper entitled “A Large-Scale Sand-Retention Test Facility for Evaluation and Selection of Optimal Standalone Sand Screen for Injection Wells in Thermal Operations” by RGL Petroleum/Geomechanics Engineer, Madhi Mahmoudi.
The paper explores a new large-scale sand retention testing (SRT) facility that simulates the effect of pressure pulsation and backflow in injection wells on the sand control performance of stand-alone screens and helped SPE consultant Xiuli Wang outline how demand persists for cost-saving and value-adding innovations and emerging technologies that are bridging the gaps in existing technology portfolios for sand management and control.
JPT, the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ flagship magazine, presents authoritative briefs and features on technology advancements in exploration and production, oil and gas industry issues, and news about SPE and its members.

The full paper can be read obtained from OnePetro’s online library of technical literature for the oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) industry.
