An engineering system has been developed for sand production prediction. The system synergistically uses geological reservoir characterization, log analysis, and core rock strength testing to forecast perforation cavity stability. Coupling the system with a reservoir simulator permits the modeling of cavity stability at initial conditions and throughout the life of a well. Three examples are given of applications of the engineering system to sand problems in North Sea reservoirs.
