Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Lost circulation is one of the key contributors to Non-Productive Time (NPT) in drilling, completion and the cementing phase of a well. While the challenge is the same, the underlying causes are different based on the conditions of each of aforementioned operations. This therefore requires a holistic approach – for existing solutions such as Managed Pressure Drilling, Casing & Liner Drilling to be synergistically used with fluid design and contingency planning – to execute a successful overall operation. Various technologies should be evaluated as complimentary solutions and not mutually exclusive. This presentation will serve to highlight the various engineering, chemical and data-based tool at the industry’s disposal in what is referred to as the “lost circulation tool-box”. The presentation will also highlight workflows that are based on a systematic approach to increase the likelihood of success of the solutions and hence have a positive impact on reducing Non-Productive Time.
