FS-1257 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-1257 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 OIL FOAM STICKS™ in conjunction with FS-1257 STICKS.
FS-1257 STICKS are used to increase the swabbing efficiency and life of swab cups. The slick coating along with the foaming action increases efficiency and life of the swab cups and allows the well to flow easier. The perforations are often cleaned as a result of the surfactants and swabbing action.
FS-1257 STICKS are used in water injection wells in combination with ACID STICKS® to help reduce injection pressures. Surfactants contained in FS-1257 STICKS can help remove oil coatings on scale. This helps the ACID STICKS® react with the exposed scale.
