Soap Sticks and Chemical Sticks for Oil & Gas Wells

EF-21 Soap Sticks are composed of a blend of high performance foaming agents encased in a water-soluble tube. EF-21 Soap Sticks dissolve much faster than conventional “hard” sticks. This allows for much shorter shut in times. This product is effective in a broad range of water types. It will also tolerate more produced hydrocarbons than conventional “hard” sticks.

Upon application, the stick will fall to the top of the water level. There they will begin to dissolve, releasing the highly concentrated foaming agents. As the foaming agents are released, agitation from flow-through gas will begin to build a stable foam column. The accumulated fluids can then be removed by opening the well to minimal system pressure.


For unloading fluid buildup in gas wells, drop 2 –4 sticks down the tubing. Shut the well in for 15 minutes – 1 hour. Then open the well back up to a minimal system pressure. A regular maintenance treatment program is recommended. By dropping 1 – 2 sticks on a regular basis higher levels of production can be maintained and unnecessary swabbing can be eliminated. Actual minimum stick usage and shut in times can vary significantly from well to well. We suggest the above mentioned usage rates be used as starting points and then adjusted up or down depending on your wells responsiveness to this product.
