This paper provides an analysis of perforation-tunnel stability through a set of three-dimensional 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.
