A Productive Quarter with Multiple Projects and Team Expansion

DuneFront's reputation as an independent and experienced sand control consultancy has kept us busy with multiple critical projects for our clients. During this quarter, we closely collaborated with our customers in North and South America. We conducted a design verification study of a critical well for a Major Operator deepwater Gulf of Mexico and performed a post-job evaluation of a gravel pack treatment for an Independent operator deepwater South America. Additionally, we provided in-person training for our clients in Europe, Southeast Asia, and South America.

Our training courses were tailored to meet our clients' specific requirements, and our experienced instructors covered sand control design through practical exercises using PackPro. If you have any sand control consulting or training needs, please don't hesitate to contact us. We would be thrilled to work with you and create a custom solution to meet your specific requirements.


As PackPro is the industry-standard software for designing and evaluating sand control treatments, DuneFront remains committed to releasing new versions of PackPro by incorporating features and fulfilling requests from our clients. We officially launched PackPro 6.0 earlier this year and are excited to announce a new update with additional features and functions that will further enhance your experience. Stay updated by following us on social media.


Carolina Latini, one of our Technical Sales Engineers, attended the Sand Management Network's Technology Forum in Bergen, held in May. The event focused on the application of sand management in Geothermal, Carbon Capture/Storage, and Underground Hydrogen Storage. It provided a great opportunity to network with experts and explore how DuneFront's services and expertise can contribute to these applications. Our Managing Director, Philip Wassouf, attended the SPE Sand Management workshop in Baku, Azerbaijan. This workshop, the first of its kind in the region, received significant participation with over 70 attendees from 12 different countries. Phil presented case histories of shunted gravel pack failures, analyzing bottom hole gauge data to evaluate them and share lessons learned from these challenging applications. In addition to the valuable work, Phil enjoyed networking and reconnecting with old friends.


The DuneFront team further expanded this quarter with the addition of Mariano Sanchez, our new Chief Operating Officer (COO). Mariano, based in the US, brings over 20 years of experience in sand control, having worked with various techniques such as FracPack, OHGP horizontal gas wells, OHGP with fibre optics, and High-Rate Gas in different regions worldwide. His expertise in managing operations, sales, and technical teams across multiple basins will empower DuneFront's global growth and enhance customer support.


Overall, it has been a very busy quarter for us, thanks to your support. We look forward to hearing from you with any feedback regarding this newsletter or any other sand control or DuneFront-related matters.
