Malaysia's gravel pack wells have been using proppant, manufactured from other countries due to unavailability of gravel pack proppant manufacturer in Malaysia. Using local sand as the material, this project will focus on characterizing local sand as potential material for proppant for gravel pack completion by comparing its characteristic with market proppant which are ceramic proppant Schlumberger and Halliburton. The project consisted of four main parts. First, the literature review on Malaysia's sand reservoir, gravel pack, proppants, and standard test as recommended by API and other technical report. Second, the acquirement of sand samples at 6 differrent places in Terengganu. Third, analyze particle size distribution of samples using sieve analysis. Finally, analyze characteristic oflocal samples as compared to industry proppant as mention above. The findings from this project are as follows: 1. Factor of different points at the same area of study lead to different results can be neglected 2. The samples passed the API recommended specifications are Meraga and KualaAbang 3. All samples perform better than conventional proppant for size set of 30/50. The study concluded that Meraga and Kampung Rantau Abang B samples are passing the API requirement and perform better than conventional proppant of size set 30/50.
