The problem of development of gas hydrate deposits is complicated by a range of problems connected with the adaptation of traditional methods and procedures to develop the mentioned type of raw materials. Construction methods of the directed well deserve high attention since they are the most efficient solution to provide a stable process of gas fraction production. Experts of the Dnipro University of Technology are at the top among the studies engaged in implementation and operation of gas hydrate deposits. Among other things, the experts have designed rational bottomhole assemblies of the directed drilling for the conditions of gas hydrate deposits. Such devices have a number of functional features. The paper describes following particularities being the most significant ones: a material to produce destructive balls and their physical properties; operating modes of a drilling process; directionality of bottomhole circulation processes as for the operational parameters of flushing fluids; and spatial location of well direction. Both calculations and bench tests favoured the process intended to identify functional features of the devices and proved convincingly the truthfulness of the initial theoretical foundations to drill the directed wells with the help of the modernized hydromechanical boring tool combined with a feeding device. The paper purpose is to analyze and substantiate structural solutions within the certain units of techniques for complex use as well as determine the rational operating schedules of the latter in the context of specific geological conditions where the directed wells are under construction.
