The problem of horizontal wellbore treatments is stated for the low sand face flow due to higher bottom hole pressure close to toe and uniform sand inflow along horizontal well. The modeling approach, including the uniform distribution of viscosity reducer agent along the sub-horizontal section, linear distribution along the sub-horizontal section, fully coupled numerical simulation, and assumption of driving force by solution gas expansion, is presented.
