F-142 (Salt Inhibitor Stick) 0% 1 to 10 Toolbox, Pail, Chest, Drum 25, 48, 80, 480 respectively Pale Blue in color the F-142 is a salt inhibitor soapstick. In many gas wells the water that enters the well bore contains various amounts of salts dissolved in the water. When fluid moves up the casing or tubing these dissolved salts will precipitate out and reduce the opening in the pipe and in some instances totally plug the pipe. These salt sticks help keep salt in solution and help prevent build up from occurring or greatly reducing the situation. On a scale of 1-10 this sticks hardness is 8.
F-154 0% 1 to 10 Toolbox, Pail, Chest, Drum 25, 48, 80, 480 respectively Black in color the F-154 are oil-soluble sticks that release paraffin inhibitor to help reduce paraffin deposition from crude oil in production systems. These sticks are very economical when compared to paraffin cutting and removal operations and can eliminate or delay the need for conventional paraffin removal operations. Continuous treatment with these sticks can extend the time period between future operations. On a scale of 1-10 this sticks hardness is 9.
ACID CAPS N/A N/A Toolbox, Pail, Chest, Drum 25, 48, 80, 480 respectively Acid Caps are water soluble capsules filled with a blend of solid inorganic and organic acids. These capsules are used to dissolve calcium or iron deposits on down-hole perforations. These sticks will remove carbonate scale, rust deposits, and lower well pressures.
GAS CAPS N/A N/A Toolbox, Pail Chest, Drum 25, 48, 80, 480 respectively Gas Caps are water solule capsules which are filled with a blend of gas generating solids. These capsules are used in conjunction with soapsticks to unload fluids from low pressure or dead gas wells. GAS CAPS are primarily used to produce gas to help de-watering of gas wells, kicking off dead wells, and other areas involving foam and agitation. The creation of foam reduces the hydrostatic back pressure on the formation then the produced gas can break through from the formation and kick-off the well.

Drilling Sticks

Stick Name Oil Foaming Percentage Water Foaming Ability (barrels) Container Type Quantity Per Container Description
SAPP Sticks N/A N/A Toolbox, Pail, Chest, Drum 25, 48, 80, 480 respectively White in color the SAPP Stick is a drilling stick containing a combination of surfactants and sodium acid pyrophospate that will eliminate clay stringing on drill collars, work as clay thinner and dispersant, help prevent bit balling, decrease wear on shaker screen, work as a friction reducer, lower pH, and inhibit calcium. Drilling sticks should be dropped into the drill pipe at every other connection point. On a scale of 1-10 this sticks hardness is 10.
PHPA Stick N/A N/A Toolbox, Pail, Chest, Drum 25, 48, 80, 480 respectively White in color the PHPA Stick is 50% active PHPA type copolymer in a surfactant based solid stick. These sticks are applied to drilling fluids to control wellbore shales or to extend bentonite clay in low-solids mud. The PHPA stick is believed to seal micro-fractures, coat shale surfaces with a film that retards shale degradation and also links particles together to facilitate sweeps in well bores and casing strings by carrying cuttings and materials to the surface. In addition, these PHPA sticks minimize bit-balling and add to bit life thru lubrication. Typical application is to drop a stick into the drill pipe during a connection to create a viscous sweep. Field tests indicate the best results are achieved under normal drilling operations when 1 to 2 (1 1/4" x 15") sticks were dropped to joint of drill stem added.
Clay Mod N/A N/A Toolbox, Pail, Chest, Drum 25, 48, 80, 480 respectively When bit balling occurs use this Clay Mod stick. This proprietary blend of chemicals and surfactants will shrink clay and repel clay from the drill bit. The clay modifier stick will enhance the solids lifting capabilities of drilling fluids, help with torque reduction, and help prevent the jets on the drill bit plugging. Field tests indicate the best results are achieved under normal drilling operations when 1 to 2 sticks were dropped between joints when bit balling occurs and slows drilling. This stick is NOT ot be used continuously between each joint only when bit balling occurs.
Drill Stick N/A N/A Toolbox, Pail, Chest, Drum 25, 48, 80, 480 respectively Pale Blue in color the Drill Stick is a condensate-dispersible water-soluble sticks containing a combination of surfactants and friction reducers that will perform in the presence of salt and fresh water systems. The foaming action allows the mud to flow easier with less pressure increasing the efficiency of the drilling process, it helps prevent the jets on the drill bit from plugging optimizing mud and cutting returns to the surface and also helps improve drill bit penetration into the ground formations. Drilling sticks should be dropped into the drill pipe at every other connection point. On a scale of 1-10 this sticks hardness is 8.
