COR-SCAV STICKS are primarily used in oil and gas production operations where wells have been depleted of their production and are to be plugged and abandoned. In many cases these wells have untreated water pumped down the annulus as a purging agent. This water over long periods can cause degradation of the metal surfaces down hole, therefore causing loss and or leakage of fluids. The high concentration of both products in stick form when added down hole to the fluids will form a strong organic film on the metal surfaces and absorb the free oxygen in the fluids to prevent corrosion attack to the metal surfaces. The combination of products and its surface activity will also eliminate the environment for anaerobic bacteria growth.

COR-SCAV STICKS can be used to treat certain hard to reach areas in water injection systems. Dead areas such as rat-hole, annulus space above the packer, water hauling truck tanks and the bottom of water supply tanks may be reached and more easily treated


COR-SCAV STICKS are very economical and a cost effective way to treat and protect metal surfaces down hole in abandoned wells. The use of COR-SCAV STICKS saves investment in chemical pumps, drums of liquid chemical, hazardous liquid chemical spills and maintenance of equipment.


The number of COR-SCAV STICKS to be used varies from one well operation to the other. The volume and water weight can also affect the number of sticks to be dropped. Lab and field tests indicated that the best results were achieved when a treatment rate of 400 PPM based on the weight of the total volume of water to be treated was initiated. EXAMPLE: An initial slug treatment of 400 PPM would require 3.2 lbs of COR-SCAV STICKS per 24 BBL (1,000 gal.) of water to be treated.


As with all industrial chemicals, contact with eyes or skin should be avoided. Wash thoroughly with water. Sticks should be stored in a cool dry place. Always remove stick from plastic bag before using. Bag can be used as a glove to avoid contact with hands. Refer to the MSDS Sheet for any additional required and recommended information.
