FIZZ Sticks are water-soluble sticks containing a combination of surfactants and additional additives to self-activate. The self-activating additive and surfactants react immediately upon contact with water creating an effervescing effect to help establish the foam column required to remove the fluids from down hole in most cases. FIZZ Sticks have been found to be effective in speeding up the foaming process in wells with bottom hole temperature below 90 degrees Fahrenheit.


FIZZ Sticks are designed to remove water from gas wells and increase gas production. The foaming decreases the hydrostatic back-pressure which increases gas production until the well unloads. For gas-condensate wells with more than 75% condensate, it is recommended to use Select Industries Oil Foam Stick or Select Industries Fluro-Stick in conjunction with FIZZ Sticks. FIZZ Sticks can be used to increase the swabbing efficiency and life of swab cups. The slick coating along with the foaming action increases efficiency and life of the swab cups while also resulting in the perforations being cleaned.


The number of FIZZ Sticks to be used is based on the volume of water above the perforations. Field test indicate that the best results were achieved by using a larger initial slug treatment of 1/2 to 1 percent by weight of FIZZ Sticks to water above the perforations. A treatment of 1/2 to 1 percent by weight would require approximately 1.75 to 3.50 lbs of stick per BBL of water.

Safety and Handling

Please review SDS prior to using this product. As with all industrial chemicals, contact with eyes or skin should be avoided. Wash thoroughly with water if contact with skin is made. Sticks should be stored in a cool dry place. Always remove stick from plastic bag or cardboard tube before using. Bag or tube can be used as a glove to avoid contact with hands.
