A frequent challenge encountered in the exploitation of mature gas fields located in the Getic Depression is sand production. Causes of sand production are mainly related to degree of rock consolidation, lithology, increasing water production and production rates. The effects of sand production are multiple such us low productivity of the gas wells, accumulation into the surface equipment, erosion of downhole and surface equipment, plugging the perforation zone and casing damage. The current paper will address the sand production- challenges and new perspectives in remedial work of wells which are producing from gas reservoirs located in Getic Depression. The article presents through some case studies the research performed for the implementation of the frac-pack technology in some gas wells.
