|Application: RIGFOAM-3 is of benefit for wells
exhibiting some amount of gas release. A completely dead well should not be treated with
Typical concentrations of RIGFOAM-3 range from 0.1% to 0.5%,
depending on the formation and injection fluid, injection rates, compressor equipment,
etc. Usually 10 to 20 gallons of RIGFOAM-3 are batched down the tubing, followed by two
barrels of produced water as a flush. Formation gas perking through the liquid generates
foam throughout the column and assists many weak wells in overcoming hydrostatic pressure.
For fresh water, KCl and NaCl brines, the typical concentration of RIGFOAM-3 is 2 to 6
gallons per 10 bbl fluid. Please consult a RIG-CHEM representative for a specific
RIGFOAM-3 application recommendation.
