This paper will describe the design objectives and choices prior to drilling of the subject well, and modifications to the completion design once well logs were in hand. The well was a test bed to compare the effectiveness of acid fracturing vs. proppant fracturing in a deep gas carbonate reservoir, as well as the technology used to deliver the stimulations, open hole packers vs. cemented in sleeves. In the current low gas price environment, a multiple well drilling program could not be pursued, the budget was limited to one well to test concepts and methodologies.
