Casing and perforating programs along with completion and stimulation practices are also discussed. The paper lays emphasis on the recent use of the Binary Foam as a fracturing fluid along with case studies.

Additionally, the paper goes over the design of a Binary foam frac with the aid of 3-D design model and foam fluid rheology. Post frac productivity results along with the amount of proppant placed in the fracture are presented to help in future frac designs.
