A method can include introducing a particulate diverting agent into a first fracture within an underground reservoir formation. The particulate diverting agent can at least partially hydraulically isolate the first fracture. The particulate diverting agent can also be a temporary material which substantially degrades over an extended time. The underground reservoir formation can be stimulated with a stimulation fluid sufficient to expand a second fracture within the underground reservoir formation. The particulate diverting agent can then be allowed to substantially degrade.

A method and system for providing a temporary sealant within a wellbore of a subterranean formation is disclosed. According to one embodiment, the temporary sealant comprises a particulate material and a liquid. The particulate material and the liquid are mixed to a predetermined dilution ratio. The temporary sealant is pumped into fractures via an open hole of the wellbore. The particulate material accumulates and is left within the fractures to set. Over a predetermined period of time, the particulate material degrades, disintegrates, or dissolves within the fractures.
