BJ Services FSA-1 Fines Stabilization Agent


Minimize production declines due to mobile fines

The BJ Services FSA-1 fines stabilization agent is an aqueous solution that, when
added to a stimulation treatment in a sandstone formation, minimizes production
declines due to fines migration. A hydrolysable organosilane, the FSA-1 agent forms
a siloxane covalent bond to reduce the mobility of siliceous fines (quartz, feldspars, Applications
mica, clays, etc.) in sandstone formations. Hydraulic fracturing treatments or frac
