Chemical Foamers for Gas Well Deliquification

Unload water and condensate from gas wells

Production chemicals

Remove unwanted liquids from the wellbore and restore gas production

SLB provides a wide range of tested and proven foamer technologies for removing liquids, such as water and condensate, from the wellbore and restoring gas production.

Liquid foamers—developed for varying brine chemistries and temperatures as well as the presence of condensate—can be formulated as stand-alone products or combined with scale and corrosion inhibitors.

Solid-stick foamers have also been developed for a wide range of applications and condensate levels, including temperatures up to 170 degC [338 degF].

The following treatment options are available:

  • topside
  • batch, including liquid batch, sticks, and squeeze
  • continuous, including drip and capillary string.
