An innovative, nondamaging viscoelastic surfactant acid system overcomes many challenges in carbonate-reservoir stimulation. This solids-free fluid is self-diverting and compatible with common additives. It can be bullheaded or delivered through coiled tubing as a single fluid and remains effective at high temperatures. Case studies demonstrate successful treatments in both matrix- and acid-fracturing stimulation treatments.
