Sand X®

Green completions that save money and promote safety.

Sand X® is an environmentally friendly, safe, and cost-effective system that removes sand during the completions process. During drill out and flowback operations, operators can flow directly into the Sand X®, which separates oil and water in order to efficiently remove processed sand. As the first product of its kind, Sand X® has paved the way for green completions in the oil and gas industry worldwide.

In addition to separating sand from flowback returns, the Sand X® process enables operators to recirculate drilling fluids from the Sand X® tank, which saves disposal, clean out, and chemical costs. By reducing the need for multiple frac tanks, Sand X® also saves well site pad space.

The newest Sand X® designs include a double auger. This eliminates downtime and allows the system to increase the volume of flowback processed, even during frac screen outs. 

For wells producing gas during drill out, operators use the Super Loop® to separate gas from flowback and send it to a low pressure flare prior to entering the Sand X®.

Training and course certification are provided by Sand X® product specialists to equip customers for success. This ensures optimal operation and virtually eliminates the risk of downtime.

The Sand X® process offers the following benefits:

  • Reduces the economic and ecologic impact of sand disposal
  • Reduces frac tank or open top cleanout expenses
  • Operates successfully on all types of sands, including 100 mesh
  • Produces virtually dry sand, enabling less expensive disposal
