This review of papers illustrates some of the innovative solutions used in the region. A look at techniques and technologies aimed at mitigating erosion issues from produced sand. Facilities sand management is tasked with the goal of ensuring sustained hydrocarbon production when particulate solids are present in well fluids, while minimizing the impact of the produced solids on surface equipment. This paper discusses the available methodologies for remediation of a pipeline affected by sand and presents examples where the discussed methodologies have been applied.
