Title (EN) EXPANDABLE SCREEN UTILIZING NEAR NEUTRALLY-BUOYANT PARTICLES OUTSIDE OF THE SCREEN
(FR) FILTRE DE PUITS EXPANSIBLE UTILISANT DES PARTICULES A FLOTTABILITE QUASI NEUTRE A L'EXTERIEUR DU FILTRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)In one embodiment, a wellbore completion method includes disposing an expandable screen into a well bore and disposing a fluid into an annular space between a wall of the wellbore an the expandable screen. The fluid contains a plurality of near neutrally-buoyant particles. The method further includes radially expanding the screen, whereby the near neutrally-buoyant particles exert a force against the wall of the wellbore.
(FR)Dans un mode de réalisation, cette invention concerne un procédé de complétion d'un puits de forage, qui consiste à disposer un filtre expansible dans un puits de forage et à placer un fluide dans un espace annulaire entre une paroi du puits et le filtre expansible. Ce fluide contient plusieurs particules à flottabilité quasi neutre. Ce procédé consiste en outre à effectuer l'expansion radiale du filtre, de telle sorte que les particules à flottabilité quasi neutre exerce une force contre la paroi du puits de forage.
