BakerMesh Sand Control Screens
Prevent sand production with economical sand screen solution
BakerMesh™ screens help to maximize sand-free production and control costs with a rugged yet economical design that resists damage and erosion for effective, long-term sand control.
- Leverage lower costs with an economical sand screen design
- Improve operational efficiency with accelerated screen delivery
- Enhance sand-free production performance with combined solution
Leverage lower costs with an economical sand screen design
Each BakerMesh screen consists of a combination of perforated shrouds and mesh to provide effective filtration and increase drainage. A dimpled inner shroud provides standoff between the basepipe and the outer jacket to enable sufficient flow, and formation-specific filtration media optimize sand retention while providing enhanced plugging resistance. Multiple mesh options and pore sizes accommodate a broad range of formation sands. And an outer perforated shroud protects the filter media during deployment and throughout production to extend reliable service life. The result is a multilayered, rugged screen that provides an efficient, effective, and versatile sand control solution for cost-sensitive applications. The all-weld design provides a high strength, cost-effective coupling that firmly attaches the screen to the basepipe for increased strength and reliability.
Improve operational efficiency with accelerated delivery
The sand screens are manufactured using a proprietary and standardized process that assembles all screen layers in a single operation. Standardized construction minimizes inventory and improves process controls, simplifying and accelerating delivery.
Enhance sand-free production performance with combined solution
When used with EQUALIZER™ inflow control devices, the combined screen and inflow control technology act as a self-governing sand-control solution that compensates for flow rate fluctuation. And in standalone applications, Baker Hughes recommends running REPacker™ self-energizing packers with BakerMesh screens to provide options for controlling future water production.
- Completions in unconsolidated sands with long production intervals
- Recommended for wells with production rates less than 8,000 barrels of oil per day
