The process of gravel packing involves a substantial number of variables which must be specified by the operator. The relationship between the variables, especially for gravel packing in highly deviated wells, is not well understood. Further, the effective packing of perforations in deviated wellbores is critical to ensuring both a productive and stable gravel packed well. This paper reports on the development of a microcomputer based package which incorporates several numerical design models as options for the design of effective gravel packing in the screen/casing annulus and inside the perforations.
