Expandable sand screens are a cost-effective sand control solution for gas storage wells ///

In the Northern Hemisphere, natural gas production typically exceeds consumption from April through October, and gas is placed in storage. When the demand for natural gas exceeds production, typically from November through March, it is withdrawn from storage. Each winter, about 20% of all gas consumed is derived from underground gas storage (UGS) wells. This enables operators to efficiently regulate the flow of gas to customers, even if production is disrupted temporarily. UGS wells also help interstate pipeline companies to balance system supply on their long-haul transmission lines.
