    Sand Production is the migration of the formation sand induced by the flow of reservoir fluids. It is initiated when the rocks around the perforations fail and the fluids thrust the loose grains into the borehole. It takes place when the reservoir fluid flow outpaces an assertive threshold which depends on factors like stress state, reservoir ...
