An operator in the Haynesville Shale had a gas well with average production in December and January of 137.9 Mscfd. The operator switched chemical providers and, on February 1, Clariant Oil Services began foam-treating the well.
WellBoost 401T, a multi-functional product of foamer surfactant, scale inhibitor and corrosion inhibitor developed by Clariant Oil Services, was applied, and average production increased to 170.7 Mscfd of gas in February and March. The WellBoost 401T chemical foamer technology was applied via capillary with a bottomhole temperature of 260⁰F.
