Paper presented at the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition, October 26–29, 2020
Paper Number: SPE-201668-MS
... Abstract Lost-Circulation Materials (LCMs) are used to control and mitigate fluid loss problems by fracture sealing. Without a proper lost-circulation technique, an increase in non-productive time (NPT) and well control problems may occur. A good design in the LCMs to seal fractures and to...

Prevention depends on knowing the loss risk ahead so both drilling practices and mud formulation can be optimized accordingly. Proper planning can also reduce related well control, loss of kick tolerance and/or wellbore instability...
