FS-1259 Sticks are water soluble sticks containing a combination of surfactants primarily used to remove water from gas wells and increase gas production. The foaming action decreases the hydrostatic back-pressure which increases gas production that further enhances the foaming action until the well unloads.


FS-1259 Sticks are designed to be used for wells making 5-10 barrels of water (0-200,000 PPM Chlorides) per day and up to 75% hydrocarbon content. For gas-condensate wells with more than 75% condensate, it is recommended to use Select Oil Foam Sticks. FS-1259 Sticks have been used in water injection wells in combination with ACID STICKSĀ® to help reduce injection pressures. Surfactants contained in FS-1259 Sticks can help remove oil coatings on scale. This helps the ACID STICKSĀ® to react with the exposed scale.


The number of FS-1259 Stick to be used is based on the volume of water above the perforations. Field tests indicate that the best results were achieved by using a larger initial slug treatment of 1/2 to 1 percent by weight of FS-1259 Stick 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.
