Title: FRACTURING A FORMATION WITH MORTAR SLURRY
Abstract:
A method to provide fractures in a formation includes providing a wellbore in the formation and providing a casing in the wellbore. The method also includes providing communication between an inside of the casing and the formation and initiating a fracture from the communication between the inside of the casing and the subterranean formation. The method further includes propagating the fracture with a fluid comprising mortar slurry. Prior to propagating the fracture with a fluid comprising mortar slurry, a fluid comprising acid is injected into the formation through the communication between the inside of the casing and the formation.
