Chemical remedial sand control using the subsea flowline succeeds

Sand production is a major concern to the industry and is more critical today, especially in offshore environments where tolerance to sand production is low.

Mechanical sand control methods are considered reliable and there are options available, from simple to sophisticated, depending on the situation.
