This paper provides an analysis of perforation tunnel stability using a set of 3-D transient fluid flow and geomechanical finite element codes. The results are quantitatively accurate and can be applied to field design completion problems. The paper clarifies the causes of sand problems occurring in a field and suggests techniques to minimize the problems.
