This thesis investigates a new stimulation technique to extract natural gases from reservoir rocks, that considers the fracture characteristics as well as the permeability of the rocks. The technique discussed in this thesis involves the use of a foam-based fluid, which is a more environmentally friendly alternative when compared with conventional fracturing fluids such as water. The thesis has pragmatic outcomes, that may contribute to the knowledge of petroleum industry.
