Comprehensive Design and Manufacturing Solutions for Sand Control and Tooling towards Enhanced Oil Recovery

Yongsheng Ma
Abstract—This paper proposes an integrated and coherent research program includes phenomena discovery and investigation, product design, performance evaluation, failure mode analysis, interfacial and surface interaction enhancement, tooling product development and manufacturing technologies. The focused area is tooling system design and manufacturing of steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) oil extraction technology. This study covers sand control liners and inflow and outflow control devices for in-situ heavy oil extraction. In order to provide solid scientific engineering input and analysis support, multi-disciplinary experts with a unique combination of strengths are suggested to form a team; hence the collective expertise covers a broad range of required scientific challenges. This proposed program leverages on knowledge-based and sustainable solutions with synergic, industry-oriented, and multidisciplinary collaboration approach.

Index Terms—Multi-disciplinary research, steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD), phenomenon modeling, semantic modeling.
