    Abstract:

    Sand production is a major issue during oil and gas production from unconsolidated reservoirs. In predicting the onset of sand production, it is important to accurately determine the sand production mechanisms and the contributing parameters. The aim of this study was to determine sand production mechanism in an oil reservoir, identify the major contributing parameters and evaluate their effects on sanding. Sand failure mechanisms and contributing parameters were identified. The results showed that cohesive stress is the predominant sand failure mechanism. Sand strength, grains movement, shear and tensile strengths impact sand production too.
