HA-FWF Sticks are specialty foam sticks that contains 100% active surfactants, friction reducer and
foam stabilizer in water soluble paper tubes. HA-FWF Sticks were designed to be used in shallow
CBM gas wells with low bottom-hole temperatures. They are fast-acting sticks and will dissolve in cold
fluids where other sticks require more time to dissolve.


HF-FWF Sticks are primarily used to remove water from gas wells and increase gas production. This
foaming action decreases the hydrostatic back-pressure which increases gas production that further
enhances the foaming action until the well unloads. HA-FWF Sticks can be used to remove
condensate from water and gas condensate wells and flowing oil wells. For wells with more than 75%
condensate, it is recommended to use the Select Industries Oil Foam Stick or the Select Industries


The number of HA-FWF Sticks 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 0.0125 %
(1/8 %) to 0.025 % (1/4 %) by weight of HA-FWF Sticks to water above the perforations. A treatment of
0.0125 % to 0.025 % by weight would require approximately .44 to .88 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.
