FLURO-STICKS are primarily used to increase gas production by removing condensate, hydrocarbons and water from gas-condensate wells. The foaming action decreases the hydrostatic back-pressure which increases gas production which further enhances the foaming action until the well unloads. Some water must be present to enhance the FLURO-STICKS foaming action in wells with BHT less than 130ºF.
FLURO-STICKS are recommended only when over 75% of fluid column is composed of condensate/hydrocarbon. If the fluid column contains over 25% water, it is recommended to use SLICK STICKS only or a combination of both FLURO-STICKS and SLICK STICKS to be more effective in removing the fluid.
FLURO-STICKS can be used to increase the swabbing efficiency and life of swab cups. The slick coating and foaming action increases efficiency of the swab and extends the life of swab cups. The perforations are often cleaned as a result of the detergent and swabbing action. PRODUCT ADVANTAGES FLURO-STICKS are an economical way to remove condensate/hydrocarbons and water from gas-condensate wells without using expensive well service operations such as swabbing, jetting with coiled tubing, or installing artificial lift and siphon strings.
