Facilities Sand Management Case Studies (B-FSM-198)
A helpful tool in designing a Facilities Sand Management system is to see what other companies have done in their situation. There are several good technical papers and Case Studies – listed below – to provide guidelines for understanding a good FSM scheme and to see what others have done.
- “Enhanced Production Through Surface Facilities Sand Management”. SPE Distinguished Lecturer presentation. 2018-2019.
- “Upgrade of Spar Topsides with Comprehensive Facilities Sand Management System”. Y. Loong; H. Rawlins; D. Goo. 2014. https://doi.org/10.4043/24705-MS
