DESCRIPTION

SandLOK is an aqueous-based sand consolidation system that chemically binds the sand grains while maintaining sufficient permeability to achieve the production rate. SandLOK is a two component system that is designed to be injected into the formation to control the undesirable production of sand from weak sandstone formations.

Advantages
The SandLOK sand consolidation system provides the following advantages:
No special solvents or surfactants are required as pre-flush prior to the treatment. 2% KCl is recommended as the pre-flush to prepare the formation for SandLOK treatment
The SandLOK system has low viscosity for easy pumping through the coil tubing
Low viscosity, easy to pump
Safe operation process with high flash point system
The retained the permeability can be controlled by the post-flush volume
The SandLOK system can be optimized for different applications
The pumping time can be designed for the applications
Laboratory data showed the SandLOK System generally sets up within 24 hours at 140F - 194F

Laboratory Sand Consolidation Procedure
Use a 60 ml syringe, blocking off one end with glass wool and pack with ~50 g of sand, flush with 2% KCl and determine the pore volume of the sand pack.
Prepare SandLOK solution. The ratio of the SandLOK A and SandLOK B is 3:1 – 4:1, depending on the pumping time and set up time required.  Flush 1 pore volume (PV) of the SandLOK solution through the sand pack.
2% KCl post-flush can be applied immediately after the SandLOK, or the post-flush can be delayed so the SandLOK can polymerize and form a network in the matrix.  The SandLOK system is very versatile and the volume, the set up time and post flush can be designed and adjusted based on the need.
Set in the oven to allow the SandLOK to cure. The curing time is between 5 hours and 24 hours depending on the reservoir characteristics, the bottom-hole temperature, the ratio of SandLOK A to SandLOK B, the post flush time and volume, etc. Each application needs to be pre-tested in order to determine the optimum treating conditions.
