EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Lost Circulation: Mechanisms and Solutions provides the latest information on a long-existing problem for drilling and cementing engineers that can cause improper drilling conditions, safety risks, and annual losses of millions of wasted dollars for oil and gas companies. While several conferences have convened on the topic, this book is the first reliable reference to provide a well-rounded, unbiased approach on the fundamental causes of lost circulation, how to diagnose it in the well, and how to treat and prevent it in future well planning operations. As today’s drilling operations become more complex, and include situations such as sub-salt formations, deepwater wells with losses caused by cooling, and more depleted reservoirs with reduced in-situ stresses, this book provides critical content on the current state of the industry that includes a breakdown of basics on stresses and fractures and how drilling fluids work in the wellbore. The book then covers the more practical issues caused by induced fractures, such as how to understand where the losses are occurring and how to use proven preventative measures such as wellbore strengthening and the effect of base fluid on lost circulation performance. Supported by realistic case studies, this book separates the many myths from the known facts, equipping today’s drilling and cementing engineer with a go-to solution for every day well challenges. Understand the processes, challenges and solutions involved in lost circulation, a critical problem in drilling Gain a balance between fundamental understanding and practical application through real-world case studies Succeed in solving lost circulation in today’s operations such as wells involving casing drilling, deepwater, and managed pressure drilling

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"Lost circulation materials (LCM's) have been widely used to avoid or stop losses. Due to a large number of current available LCM's and their different applications, classification of LCM's is very important. The most recent LCM classification was published around 50 years ago, and this paper intends to fill this gap with an updated classification including conventional and new technologies. Lost circulation materials and treatments are re-classified into various categories based on their appearance, applications, chemical and physical properties. Wells in Basra's oil fields are highly susceptible to lost circulation problems when drilling through the Dammam, Hartha, and Shuaiba formations. This paper discusses the most recent treatments, which are used in Basra's fields with integrated analysis and updated classification. In addition, the best lost circulation strategy of remedies will be presented to mitigate or stop this problem. Sometimes it is difficult to regulate mud losses by using conventional lost circulation materials. Also, the cost of these materials are expensive, so it is important to find techniques and mechanism to live with some degree of losses. This work will also demonstrate methods that were used to ameliorate lost circulation without the use of lost circulation materials like liner hanger and casing-while-drilling, floating mud cap drilling, aerated mud, foam, air or mist with cases histories in Basra's fields. This paper discusses the most recent developments in lost circulation materials and treatments, in addition to the presentation of a comprehensive summary of today's available LCM's, treatments and alternative approaches with their applications"--Abstract, page iv.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Drilling in complex geological settings often possesses significant risk for unplanned events that potentially intensify the economic problem of cost-demanding operations. Lost circulation, a major challenge in well construction operations, refers to the loss of drilling fluid into formation during drilling operations. Over years of research effort and field practices, wellbore strengthening techniques have been successfully applied in the field to mitigate lost circulation and have proved effective in extending the drilling mud weight margin to access undrillable formations. In fact, wellbore strengthening contributes additional resistance to fractures so that an equivalent circulating density higher than the conventionally estimated fracture gradient can be exerted on the wellbore. Therefore, wellbore strengthening techniques artificially elevate the upper limit of the mud weight window. Wellbore strengthening techniques have seen profound advancement in the last 20 years. Several proposed wellbore strengthening models have contributed considerable knowledge for the drilling community to mitigate lost circulation. However, in each of these models, wellbore strengthening is uniquely explained as a different concept, with supporting mathematical models, experimental validation, and field best practices. Due to simplifications of the mathematical models, the limited scale of experiments, and insufficient validation of field observations, investigating the fundamental mechanisms of wellbore strengthening has been an active and controversial topic within the industry. Nevertheless, lost circulation is undoubtedly induced by tensile failure or reopening of natural fractures when excessive wellbore pressure appears. In this thesis, a fully coupled hydraulic fracturing model is developed using Abaqus Standard. By implementing this numerical model, an extensive parametric study on lost circulation is performed to investigate mechanical behaviors of the wellbore and the induced fracture under various rock properties and bottomhole conditions. Based on the fracture analysis, a novel approach to simulate the fracture sealing effect of wellbore strengthening is developed, along with a workflow quantifying fracture gradient extension for drilling operations. A case study on fracture sealing is performed to investigate the role of sealing permeability and sealing length. The results described in this thesis indicate the feasibility of hoop stress enhancement, detail the mechanism of fracture resistance enhancement, and provide insights for lost circulation mitigation and wellbore strengthening treatment.
