FS-1257 Sticks are water soluble sticks containing a combination of surfactants designed to remove water from gas wells and increase gas production. Natural gas bubbling through the water-column and surfactants produce foam which can help remove the fluid from loaded up wells.


FS-1257 Sticks are designed to be used for wells making 5-10 barrels of water (0-200,00 PPM Chlorides) and up to 60% condensate. For gas-condensate wells with more than 60% condensate, it is recommended to use Select Industries Oil Foam Sticks. FS-1257 Sticks may also be used in combination with the Select Industries ACID STICKSĀ® in water injection wells to remove oil coating on scale allowing the ACID STICKSĀ® to react with the exposed scale helping reduce injection pressures.


The number of FS-1257 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-1257 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.
