SLICK 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.
SLICK 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™.
SLICK STICKS™ can be used to increase the swabbing efficiency and life of swab cups. SLICK STICKS™ contain a very slick friction reducer. The extremely 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.
SLICK STICKS™ are used in water injection wells in combination with ACID STICKS® to help reduce injection pressures. Surfactants contained in SLICK STICKS™ can help remove oil coating on scale. This helps the ACID STICKS® react with the exposed scale.
