FS-1233 Sticks water-soluble sticks that are designed to be a low stable foaming stick. This blend of NON-IONIC surfactants and friction reducers are very effective in higher hydrocarbon environments and will not effect formation clays.


FS-1233 Sticks are 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-1233 Sticks can be used to remove fluid from gas-condensate wells and flowing oil wells. For gas-condensate wells with more than 75% condensate, it is recommended to use Select Industries Oil Foam Stick or the Select Industries Fluro-Stick.


The number of FS-1233 Sticks 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-1233 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.
