FLURO-STICKS are condensate-dispersible water-soluble sticks that contain a combination of surfactants to include a flurosurfactant that foams both the condensate/hydrocarbon and water column in gas-condensate wells. The foaming action decreases the hydrostatic back-pressure which increases gas production until the well unloads. Some water must be present to enhance the FLURO-STICKS foaming action in wells with BHT less than 130°F.


FLURO-STICKS are primarily used to increase gas production by removing condensate, hydrocarbons and water from gas-condensate wells. FLURO-STICKS are recommended only when over 75% of column fluid is composed of condensate/hydrocarbon. If the fluid contains over 25% water, it is recommended to use a Select Foam Stick only or a combination of both FLURO-STICKS and Select Foam Sticks to be more effective in removing fluid. For help determining the best combination of products please contact your Select Industries representative.


The number of FLURO-STICKS to be used is based on the volume of fluid 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 FLURO-STICKS to fluid 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 fluid.

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.
