FS-1253 C Sticks are condensate-dispersible water-soluble sticks that contain surfactants that foam both the condensate and water column in gas-condensate wells. Used to increase gas production by removing condensate and water from gas-condensate wells.


FS-1253 C Sticks are designed to be used in wells with hydrocarbons higher than 60%. Some water must be present to enhance the FS-1253 C Sticks foaming action in wells with BHT less than 130°F. FS-1253 C Sticks are recommended only when over 60% of fluid column is composed of condensate. If the fluid column contains over 40% water, it is recommended to use Select Industries foam sticks designed for higher water content only or a combination of both FS-1253 C Sticks and Select Industries foam sticks to be more effective in removing the fluid.


The number of FS-1253 C 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 FS-1253 C 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.
