|Abstract:||The focus of this paper is an experimental study at room temperature and pressure of free drainage and proppant suspension of four types of designed foams: A, 0.1 wt% regular anionic surfactant mixture; B. Foam A + 0.8% SiO₂ nanoparticle; C, Foam A + 0.36% carboxymethyl hydroxypropyl guar; and D. Foam A + 7% NaCl. The results show that SiO₂ nanoparticles with surfactant significantly improve the foam stability. In addition, we concluded that better proppant suspension can be achieved by higher viscosity and higher foam stability.|
