  • Publication number: 20230392068
    Abstract: A sand consolidation composition includes a hydrocarbon mixture comprising asphaltene, bitumen, or tar, and a binding agent, where the binding agent is an amino silane, and where the composition has a viscosity ranging from 5 to 20 cP at 20 to 25° C. A method of sand consolidation includes introducing the sand consolidation composition in a wellbore, contacting sand downhole with the sand consolidation composition, maintaining the wellbore such that a viscosity of the sand consolidation composition and the sand increases from an initial viscosity of the sand consolidation composition, introducing a thermochemical reagent comprising sodium nitrite and ammonium chloride such that it intimately intermingles downhole with the sand consolidation composition and releases a gas, and after a period, forming a productive consolidated sand.
