TubeFlow PIC for Sand Control 
Sand Control Software Suite

The software suite for sand control in TubeFlow PIC is used to design gravel pack operations. Applications that are included in the sand control software suite are listed below:

  • simulates gravel pack operations to aid in pre-job planning 
  • estimates proppant and slurry volume requirements
  • supports both cased and openhole completions and remedial, thru-tubing gravel packs
  • incorporates alternate flow path (shunt tube) technology and models zonal isolation
  • determines work string movement at the crossover tool and effects of slackoff at surface
  • models coiled tubing wellbore cleanouts during sand control treatments 
  • aids in fluid selection and design
  • supports brines, gels, nitrified water, and foams
  • calculates the drag on the gravel pack screen assembly while run-in-hole (RIH) or pulled-out-of-hole (POOH)  
  • determines the buckling and triaxial stresses of the work string
  • models the wellbore cleanup during gravel/frac packing in either forward or reverse circulation  
  • simulates acid treatments through coiled tubing to remove filter cake in post gravel pack operations
  • models formation fluid leakoff by accounting for reservoir interaction during gravel pack jobs 
  • supports production, injection, and circulation operations with/without heat transfer effects from formation
  • supports real-time modeling


  • reduce job design time and cost  
  • optimize a pump/treatment schedule for the gravel pack job
  • maximize production through an accurate job design  
  • minimize occurences of incomplete packs through a comprehensive engineering analysis
