Oilfield Microbiology

The bacterial analysis is one of the most overlooked aspects of water sterility in the oilfield industry causing reservoir souring and Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC). Using measuring techniques such as inoculation and Most Probable Number (MPN), ATP test, and even simple quick checks, we are able to provide customers with the solutions they need.

Reservoir Souring 

Reservoir souring is the unplanned appearance and continuing increase in hydrogen sulphide (H2S) concentration in produced fluids associated with injection water breakthrough and occurring as a result of the down-hole activity by a specialized group of micro-organisms, the sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB)
