Wellbore instability and lost circulation continue to be the costliest problem encountered during wellbore construction. While conventional remediative treatments can decrease drilling fluid losses, increasingly challenging drilling environments— depleted fields, extended reach wells, deep water and complex well geometry—produce narrow wellbore collapse/fracture gradient drilling windows, thereby increasing the risk of lost circulation and limiting the rate of success of those “cures.” A novel strategy that incorporates a variety of tools to prevent downhole losses has been developed that is being embraced worldwide for its remarkable success not only in reducing these losses but in some cases eliminating them altogether. This strategy, called I-BOSS (for Integrated BOrehole Strengthening Solutions), provides a comprehensive toolkit specifically designed to stabilize wellbores while drilling and significantly reduce drilling costs. This workshop will provide guidance on the theory and implementation of various I-BOSS techniques, with emphasis on their practical features limitations.
