Key words: low-angle and horizontal wells, bottomhole area treatment, bottomhole formation stress, bottomhole assembly, bottomhole profile, selection of filtres.
Specifics of the drilling and operation of low-angle and horizontal well bottomholes are such that a variety of field conditions and limitations need to be taken into account. Systematization of decision making stages allows to optimize the design process and to design a bottomhole which best suits the field conditions and operation requirements.
